I was pretty shocked to hear Joshua Heintzeman say in a recent debate that John Ward has voted against our values. Having lived in this community for years, I feel that people in this area care about things like education, jobs, property tax relief, caring for seniors, fair taxes and protecting our second amendment rights.

John Ward has delivered on all of those fronts: all-day kindergarten, college tuition freeze, increased refunds for homeowners and renters, job training and incentive programs that have pushed our state's unemployment rate to its lowest point in years, increased funding for our nursing homes and caregivers, and fighting for our second amendment rights.

Heintzeman likes to make a lot of claims: at the doors, in forums and debates, and in all the awful mailers that have landed on our doorsteps. They're filled with nonsense. The idea that Rep. Ward isn't supporting the values of this district is ridiculous. I would argue that Heintzeman's values are out of step with our district. We don't need a return to political gridlock. We don't need a return to a Legislature that puts wealthy special interests ahead of our schools and middle-class families.

For the last eight years, we've had a legislator who has fought for all and served with integrity. I'll be voting for Rep. Ward on Nov. 4 and encourage everyone to join me.
