Hader has what it takes to lead district

I am enthusiastically voting for Dr. Shannon Hader to be our 8th Congressional District representative.

Shannon is an Auburn girl. I have had the pleasure of talking with her several times. She is very intelligent and is a problem solver. She is the only Democrat who has won all of her party’s endorsements.

She has headed the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s HIV and TB task force and was in charge of a more than $2 billion budget and more than 2,000 people. Millions of children were born HIV free due to her efforts.

She is also very personable but firm in her stances. Her positions are put forth at her website, drshannonforcongress.com. She has worked under four federal administrations, Republican and Democrat. Her resumé is unmatched. However, what excited me to volunteer for Shannon was that she actually listens to people and truly wants to represents her constituents. That has been sorely lacking under Dave Reichert.

The primary is Aug. 7. I urge everyone to vote for Shannon Hader.
