Thrilled to support the Brown/Ulman team for Governor/Lt. Governor

I am incredibly appreciative of the service and sacrifice veterans have made to our country. And continued thanks to those who serve in our armed forces today, protecting the United States. Many, many brave men and women have served and currently serve our great nation. Thank you.

She has protected state and federal investments in infrastructure and community development and has extended relief to businesses and residents. Karen Young’s clear vision and strong track record of success makes her well qualified to lead one of the region's most promising cities.
