I support MaryJane Shimsky for state Assembly in the upcoming Democratic primary. To be clear, both Tom Abinanti and MaryJane were helpful to me during my campaign last year for county legislator and they both raised funds for the campaign. But MaryJane’s approach was emblematic of her overall approach to governance. She was the first person to approach me to help when I was endorsed by the Mount Pleasant Democrats. We set up a weekly call and spoke nearly every week through the rest of the campaign. She was persistent and unflagging.

MaryJane takes that same approach to her job as a county legislator. She has chosen one of the most important and least flashy areas to become expert at – infrastructure. She has been responsible for huge investments in our county infrastructure. Water management in our area – from flooding to clean water – is a huge and growing issue. MaryJane is on top of it. She has also been a strong proponent of public health – and vaccination in particular.

I understand some of my colleagues’ reluctance to unseat a Democratic incumbent. But I think this is the ideal time to bring in a new and energetic woman to represent us at the state, one who has already spent years working as a professional in the statehouse.

Please join me to elect MaryJane Shimsky to our state Assembly.
