WE cannot say Thank you, enough

WE cannot say Thank you, enough

This past summer I met many, many Veterans that are struggling to fit back into our society, our culture – fit back into Home. They are often lost in the transition between their military lives and becoming civilians. I restate my purpose to my fellow Veterans that I will work

THANK YOU FOR YOUR VOTE!

THANK YOU FOR YOUR VOTE!

We WON! There are no words to express how honored and grateful I am to you all. Thank you, everyone! Thank you to the voters who took the time to vote, honoring those who serve in our Armed Forces and Founding Fathers of our great Nation. In an earlier post

7 Days!

7 Days!

Bad officials are the ones elected by good citizens who do not vote.  George Jean Nathan I know you want to turn off the radio whenever you hear another political ad. I get it. At this point in the election, we’re all tired of the campaigning. But you know what

This is a frightening statistic. More people vote in ‘American Idol’ than in any US election.  Rush Limbaugh Friends and Neighbors!  You may have gotten a phone call from me or some of our volunteers. I may have shown up at your door! Know that we’re reaching out to you,

No one matters more than you, the voter

No one matters more than you, the voter

Politicians like to talk about why they matter. But the simple truth is that no one matters more than you, the voter. You have the power to choose who will represent you in our government. My name is Kit Roupe. I’m running to be our state representative in House District

Our representative should have to live in our shoes. As a single mom, I had to choose between going to work and taking a day off to save on child care and gas.  I’ve walked a mile from the bus stop to a job interview. I still don’t have a

Catching up! Outreaching and Endorsements

It’s been a busy few weeks!  So many people to visit and share the plan with. We’ve visited over 2,000 voters, called hundreds of voters, and been interviewed by numerous associations who care about our community. We’ve put up signs, answered surveys, and well,  just reaching out to people in

Our military Veterans and families mean a great deal to me. It’s personal! As a Vietnam Era Veteran and former member of the Women’s Army Corps (WAC as some might remember it), I remember how our Vietnam Veterans were treated, including my own brother, who served two tours in Vietnam.

Education for a better tomorrow

Education for a better tomorrow

A serious threat to our educational system is Common Core. This federally driven, top-down program approach to education is robbing local control from our school districts and parents.

Spent some time at a homeless shelter serving those in need.  It is a humbling experience to see people helping others and those in need being grateful for our help. Not the best photo, but what the heck, we do the right thing for the right reasons. 🙂 I was
