Fain gets things done across party lines

I am voting for Joe Fain for state senator from Auburn, Kent and Covington’s 47th District.

Here is why:

Like most of us, I have often been frustrated by legislators who care more about sticking to their party’s line than in getting the laws passed that we need. Joe is experienced in getting that job done and is willing to negotiate with Democrats although he is a Republican. He works out compromises when necessary and listens to all the sides of an issue not just the side his party favors. That is important because without bipartisan cooperation important issues don’t get addressed. Getting legislation through all the hoops necessary is not easy, but Joe gets things done by working back and forth across the aisles. Isn’t that what we hire our legislators to do?

He knows our community and listens to our input because he and his wife and two small children live here in Auburn and he is very active in the community.

Please join me in voting for Joe Fain both in August and November.
