Letter to the citizens of District 64

Posted by | June 10, 2018 1:53 am

June 12 is the primary election which will determine who will be on the November ticket. The Democratic primary will determine who the Democrat candidate will be in November and the Republican primary will do the same. Actually the primaries are two separate tickets and we can’t vote on both.… Read the rest

She was a great driver, but would get lost uptown. She said she just kept driving around until she saw the courthouse,… Read the rest
