THE PEOPLE SPEAK — Check out Romney’s record as governor

(Continued)

— Hulbert needed

in state Legislature

At a time when our public schools, economy, and traditional Christian family values are under attack, Arthur Hulbert is the type of individual we need representing us in OKC. Arthur is an educator himself who currently has his 3 children in public schools, so he understands what must be done to stop the cuts to our school system, and he has the support of 6 local superintendents to do so. He also has created over 200 jobs for young people, including myself, who thanks to Arthur’s personal investment in our lives have had opportunity to not only earn a living ourselves, but also to return the favor and provide employment opportunities for others as well. As a man of faith, Arthur has made it his life’s work to serve others and tend to the needs of others before his own: Whether it’s providing free physical therapy to the Muskogee and Fort Gibson football teams, or his willingness to provide therapy services to the elderly who in some cases did not have the financial resources to pay for their care, and without Arthur’s generosity and desire to serve them, would have continued to go without the care they so desperately needed.

By now many of you have probably received some negative propaganda about Arthur consolidating our rural schools, supporting crippling Social Security and Medicare cuts, as well as Arthur supporting more damaging cuts to our education resources altogether. This is simply untrue, but it does reveal the type of extreme behavior and lack of character that some individuals will resort to for political gain. This is the type of politics that we have all grown so tired of, but it is very uplifting to see individuals with the character of Arthur rise above these attacks, put the needs of others first, and continue to serve their community with every ounce of strength and courage they have.

With the election coming up on November 6th, it is my sincerest hope that you will join me in voting for Arthur Hulbert to provide a brighter future for our friends and family.
