I support Steve Woods in the Senate District 25 Democratic primary because he’s intelligent and independent-minded, with a respect for individual rights and a nonpartisan way of doing business. I like that Steve has entrepreneurial experience and has run a successful business, supports pay equality and a livable wage, recognizes the value of preventative health care, and has worked as an official at the town level to ensure needed services. All great. But what’s most important to me, is bringing dollars and jobs into this state. We should feel lucky to be able to nominate Steve Woods, a creative thinker and economic developer, on June 10.
