I would like to share a true story with you. It was early morning and I was going to meet with Rep. Linda Kochmar to go to a tech conference. Several of us would carpool.

Waiting for everyone to arrive, a most unpredictable and scary thing occurred. In front of the business where we would leave from, a dog was hit by a car. Suddenly a child called for help and the dog lay in the street.

Who dropped everything and handled this incident? Who gathered up the dog and crossed over to console the child? When no parent could be found at home, and the childcare person couldn’t speak English, who called the veterinarian and offered her own credit card information for the dog to be seen? Linda Kochmar.

This is a glimpse into the character of Linda. Yes, she is highly prepared with education. Yes, she has standing in our community having lived here since 1972 and raised her six children to successful adulthood.

Yes, Linda is highly qualified with 15 years of experience as mayor, deputy mayor, City Council member and now as your state representative.

I can also confirm that Linda is rock steady, calm under stress and clearly concerned about you and your family always. Who do you trust?

Whether it is improving education, public safety, budget decisions, increasing job opportunities or compassionate action in an emergency situation, you can expect excellence from Linda Kochmar. I’m voting to re-elect Linda Kochmar.
