While I align myself with the Republican party, I will be supporting Joda Thongnopnua instead of Esther Helton in the race for State House of Representatives District 30.
His willingness to communicate with his constituents is what our district needs, considering the diversified socio-economic make up in our district. I am confident, if elected, Joda will continue to make himself available without requiring us to pay to be heard.
His opponent refused the opportunities to debate, even labeling it “ambush style politics that Democrats now use.”
Joda is not an extreme Socialist Democrat. At a recent community event (at which his opponent did not show) he had a very open and unscripted discussion about his goals and philosophies for District 30. He will not support a state income tax. His intention is not to change our right to bear arms. He does seek a more equitable distribution of school funds, which will encourage better opportunities for jobs.
I refuse to vote for someone simply riding the red wave without qualifications.
