“It’s time to focus on creating a world that works for everyone, on collaboration and possibilities, on what we can create together, not who we can tear apart. We take chances bigger than ourselves. Today we have a choice to make. Who are we going to be for our children?”

Sarmiento FamilyMy campaign stands for not simply bi-partisanship but also for the sake of common sense. I recognize that the predominantly Republican state legislators that have served this district thus far have done so as well-intentioned community members. However, partisanship has replaced reasonableness; proving the “other side” wrong has replaced compromise. Because of that, we have too often forsook good public policy while maintaining allegiance to an “R” or “D.” That type of state government should make us all fearful for what kind of state we could leave our children and the burdens they must overcome. All due to our divisiveness.

We have a choice. Legislative District 21 possesses a unique opportunity to speak out to the rest of the state and pronounce that we shall no longer stand for partisanship over people. In a district that political pundits often write off as automatically “Red” and therefore pay little attention. Instead, we can speak out proudly that in fact we stand for common sense. We can pronounce that our wants and needs should be a priority, and that we will fight for the common public good.
