I watched the recent debate between Dale Menk and Josh Heintzeman for the House 10A seat, and I came away impressed with Dale. I didn't see a typical politician whose words were run through a focus group. I saw an average citizen who was running because he wants to make a difference in the community. He seemed like someone who actually wants to hear from constituents no matter what party they identify with, and that's something we need more of these days. I also appreciated his thoughts on how polarized politics has become and how he wants to change that. I'm tired of "politics as usual," and I think Dale may be someone who can help change that. His views on every issue seem to come from studying the issues themselves, not from a party line. I'll be glad to vote for Dale in November.
