Vote for My Dad!
As the daughter of a commissioner candidate, to all those considering voting for my dad, Mike Housman, I can tell you from first-hand experience: he’s the real deal.
I’m 16 years old and have spent a lot of time with Dad, even more so this summer and fall as I (and the rest of the family) have been campaigning for and with him. Walking in parades, knocking on doors, and attending various events together has been a great experience. But the best part has been getting to spend a lot of time learning from, and just being with my best friend, my dad.
Dad’s three main campaign slogans: honesty, transparency, and common sense, aren’t just campaign slogans, or nice words that look great on a business card or brochure. This is what my dad really believes. These absolutely do describe his character and ideals. And these ARE the principles he will use as your commissioner. Anyone can say things. It’s another thing to do them. But my dad is a doer.
My dad is an honest, godly, and upright man. Dad never has different answers for different people. Like I said before, he’s the real deal! He is always honest and straightforward with everyone, as well as very transparent - another trait I admire in him. And transparency is so key to Dad - this is something that will not change if he is elected as your District 4 Commissioner. Always happy to answer questions, Dad wants to work on educating and involving the public, and having more transparency in board meetings. He is accessible, ready and willing to help the people of Meeker County. And last but not least, Dad possesses a whole lot of good ol’ common sense! But, as someone once said, “Common sense really isn’t all that common anymore.” A “fresh perspective," bold leadership, and a good dose of common sense - this is the kind of leadership Dad will bring to the commissioner board. While campaigning with Dad the last few months, I’ve had the opportunity to ask lots of questions and “talk politics” with him. I have always admired how he takes a balanced approach, considering both sides of the issue, and yes, using common sense in his answers. And he does all this in a way I can understand. I am so blessed to have such a great Dad!
If you are looking for honesty, transparency, common sense, and strong leadership on the county board, vote for Mike Housman. Dad is not your average “politician." He’s doing this because it needs to get done, and I know he’s the one for the job! Elect Mike Housman for District 4 Meeker County Commissioner!
Isn't that a great letter? :)
Other than a little distraction (with the election and all) we have been hunting all week. So far we have not bagged any deer. :( There are a couple new stands in the area where we are hunting, and the deer seem to be spooked. But Emily is on stand as I type, and hopefully others of us will get out there later today. Last year we shot three deer on the last day of season (which will be tomorrow), so maybe we will start a new tradition....one can only hope! :)
