Tough Questions for a Tough Election.

Sharon Rao wants you to ask yourself a few basic questions:

Are our children getting a good education? Are we safer in our homes and communities? Are taxes eating away our ability to provide for our families?

Good Answers from a Good Candidate.

Sharon Rao asked herself those questions and concluded we can do a better job.

Sharon Rao supports rigorous priorities for schools, so the money is spent on students in the classroom. Sharon supports clear standards for students to require performance, not just attendance in school.

Sharon Rao supports the new tougher sentencing for criminals. It reduces the crime rate and makes our communities safer.

Sharon Rao opposes new and increased taxes. We need to look at targeted ways to reduce taxes, such as tax-free interest on savings accounts to encourage personal savings.

Use Your Vote to Make Things Better.

Sharon Rao supports community involvement and personal responsibility as the best answer to our challenges.

Sharon Rao knows increasing taxes and expanding government is the problem, not the solution.

Sharon Rao believes there are significant differences between herself and her opponent, and invites you to ask her the important questions yourself. You'll like her answers. Call Sharon Rao at 637-6622.

Elect Sharon Rao A Leader We Can Be Proud Of.
