This is my blog, so I can say what I want. I have a friend running for County Commissioner in Montgomery County, PA. If you live near me, I would love you all to get to know the real person – not just the one now appearing in the Flat Hal mailed attack ads from her opponent.
This video above was made in part before the decision was made for her to be a candidate. It is an introduction to her if you are not familiar with her.
She is running against someone I first became aware of when he was a staffer for then Congressman Joe Hoeffel. His name is Josh Shapiro. I wasn’t impressed then, and he subsequently went onto the state house in Harrisburg, PA . I am still not impressed. Now he wants to run for county commissioner like his old boss Joe Hoeffel (who became a county commissioner after being a congressman and for a while always seemed to be running for something.) Shapiro’s running mate is a lady named Leslie Richards. I know nothing about her other than the company she keeps.
When I got diagnosed with breast cancer, I told my friends one by one. Among those friends I told were Jenny and her husband Rick. Both have extremely busy lives, and they always took time for me, quietly checking in to see how I was doing.
Jenny was also one of the women from the Driving Miss Daisy list. She gave up her time for me to drive me to radiation. She did it quietly and for no other reason then she is my friend. She has been so amazingly loving and positive and supportive.
That is the type of woman she is. And the type of woman she is in her personal life plays over into her political and professional life. There are too many people out there who are disingenuous in life. Not Jenny. I am proud to have her as a friend and I think she will be amazing as a county commissioner if elected.
I am not telling you how to vote, or who to vote for. I am asking you to get to know an amazing woman. Get to know her. That’s all.
