I write this letter to endorse Alicia Rule. As I plan for my 21st year as a middle school teacher in Ferndale, I know that I’m facing the challenges of a lifetime. Strong and effective state leadership is more important now than it has ever been in my career.
Alicia Rule is a transformative candidate. As a lifelong social worker and therapist, Alicia understands how to support families at their most challenging moments. She will take this understanding to the House, where her compassion for our most vulnerable community members will guide her policies.
As our state navigates a return to school during a pandemic, there is no question that the demand for family services, including mental health supports for young people, will far outpace the supply. Unprecedented times call for expert guidance; our children simply can’t wait for legislators to learn on the job. Alicia will prioritize the most effective services in a state budget that will be feeling the economic strain of the state’s residents.
Please vote Alicia Rule for 42nd Legislative District House of Representatives, Position 1.
