To the editor,
It is with great clarity and confidence that I support the candidacy of Vickie Nardello for state Senate. I have known Vickie for the past 20 years as a tireless worker for the masses, her constituents. Having been actively involved in the efforts nearly 20 years ago to give Region 16 the high school it so deserved, I witnessed Vickie as she stood side by side with us in making that dream a reality.
Vickie’s motivation is simple. Her legacy has always been about supporting the efforts of educators everywhere to help align resources, instruction and content with the ever-changing demands of today’s global economy.
But independence is what sets Vickie apart from others. Her undying support for her constituents has led to fiery exchanges with those in power at the highest levels of government, a representative fighting to do what’s right, though maybe unpopular with those in power. I distinctly remember such a battle as she fought for wind energy regulations against her fellow democratic co-chair of the Energy and Technology Committee in February of 2011.
As JFK said more than 50 years ago, “We choose to go to the moon in this decade and to do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard.”
Vickie has gone to the moon and back for my fellow neighbors, and all of her constituents in the past and will certainly do so in the future. Please support Vickie Nardello on Election Day.
