To the Editor:
The first time I met Chris, he walked into my kitchen, looked around and asked if he could borrow a Phillips screwdriver. I handed one to him and he then asked if I would like him to fix my corner rotating cupboard, which hadn’t shut correctly for ten years no matter who worked on it. Within five minutes it was fixed.
Later, as we talked about his candidacy for state senator, it was very evident that he had given a lot of thought to the problems in our state house: education, job creation, alternative energy opportunities and health issues.
His experiences as town moderator and local school board official have given him insight into the political process and working with people to get things done. As Chris says, if he’s elected, he’ll be working for everyone–Republican, Democrat, Green, un-enrolled; we all have an opinion that counts, so he enjoys listening to your ideas.
I’ll be happy when this election is finally over. I’ll be happier still when Chris Johnson is our new state senator in District 20.
