Breckenridge carries on with integrity

As I continue to work as State Representative Wes Breckenridge’s advocate after five years, I notice with every election things continue to get worse.

This is not the country I grew up in with the citizens arguing against each other on mundane issues.

Politics have become a civil rights issue instead of others listening to different opinions respectfully.

I recall after the last election, several wish they hadn’t lost friends over a small insignificant political issue. Currently, even in my own family, I am being told that I am not part of family because of a difference of opinion. Even though these same people weren’t around my parents much and they had passed away in 1990 and 1991, I was told my parents wouldn’t accept the way I think with issues.

This isn’t right. Most days, I have some contact with Wes about different matters. Wes has always followed through on everything including with the people who I send to him. We need to pull together with the economical circumstances and the problems with COVID otherwise we will lose the battles. We are entering a time when things will continue to change radically so we need someone in the statehouse who works for the people not the government. Wes carries on with integrity despite the lack of conscience displayed by others so please join with me in voting for Wes Breckenridge!
