Drake for state rep

It’s an honor to support Pamela Drake for State Representative in the 85th District. Pamela’s honesty, kindness and passion for her community are easy to see in each of her interactions. We need a representative who understands what it’s like to be an average citizen. Pamela does. As a mother, a wife and a community leader, Pamela will bring her talent for listening to her role as our elected representative. She is already ever-present in the district, attending events and meetings to support our neighbors – which she’s been doing for years, long before she was running for office. Pamela uses her faith, experience and true concern for others to guide her in her decision-making. She is a pragmatic leader who believes in being open and available to all citizens and will take that into her office in Lansing. Most importantly, Pamela has a long history of working with people that come from different backgrounds and those that have different opinions. I’m excited to see the great things she will do for us by working with members of the other party. We often lament that we cannot get people to compromise in Lansing in order to get things done. Pamela is just the woman to change this. Please join me and my family in voting for Pamela Drake on November 2 for State Representative.
