An aware candidate

With each passing year, the evidence of global climate change becomes more compelling: rising temperatures, prolonged droughts, increased flooding, etc. To combat this challenge, government at all levels must take decisive action.

Heidi Harmon is the only political candidate I’ve heard of in the country who is focusing her campaign on climate change.

She is the Democratic candidate for our local state Assembly district. Every time I hear Heidi speak, I am so impressed by her foresight, honesty and intelligence. This courageous woman understands what is happening to our planet, unlike typical “business-as-usual,” politicians.

I feel hope for the future when I see the enlightened determination of Heidi Harmon. Unless we come to grips with climate change, no other issue will matter.
