Grace’s compassion will serve her well in office


Dear Editor,

My vote is for Sarah Grace

You see, my wife and I rented from Sarah for several years before we got married, and the way Sarah treated us — especially my wife — was phenomenal.

Early in my relationship with my wife (then partner), began to suffer from misdiagnosed and untreated mental illness. She was in and out of hospitals and treatment centers all over the region. During this time, the lease on her apartment ended. She moved in with her sister, but sadly a couple weeks later that lease was up, too, and her sister was moving hundreds of miles away.

On the verge of homelessness and in no state to go apartment hunting, her mom came down and found a place Sarah was renting. We explained the situation to Sarah. Not only were there only two people for a three-bedroom home, we were waiting to hear back about my partner’s disability claim.

With no guarantee she would ever see rent in full, Sarah let my partner and another relative rent out a place — no doubt at a loss. Another six months passed before my partner’s claim was accepted, with back dated pay from her application date. For six months, Sarah never saw a dime from my partner and never said a word. Sarah took a huge risk and ended up keeping my partner as renters for several years, only ending when we got married.

Her compassion for someone in need is a trait that is really going to help her if she wins election. Seeing how far Sarah is willing to go to help someone gives me hope, and I will support her in any and all political endeavors she pursues.
