I am writing in regard to the candidate for Assembly of the 73rd District, Mary Tripp. As you may know Mary is an instructor at the University of Wisconsin-Superior as well as at Wisconsin Indian Head Technical College in Superior.
I have had the opportunity to take more than a few classes with Mary at UW-Superior. My major was Mass Communications, so I was more than on board to take an advanced mass communications course with her. After learning we would be going to Madison for Superior Days, I was confused about what this had to do with mass communications. I had a basic understanding of how government worked, but nothing worth writing home about. In preparation for Superior Days I gained invaluable knowledge regarding state and local government and how it relates to mass communications.
Mary's passion for teaching was obvious, but it was in this class I learned of her passion for government. Mary made sure all of her students understood the importance of government and taught all of us to be proactive about issues that concern us. Now as Mary herself runs for office, I see her teachings coming through in her actions.
Mary has been out in the community answering questions, getting to know her supporters, and helping others learn about what she stands for. She helped me to understand that my vote counts in every election.
Mary's passion for the community and her "get things done" attitude is something that our district needs. I don't think there is a single community member who hasn't thought about, health care, jobs, our roads, and our educations system. All issues that Mary is concerned about as well.
As someone who knows Mary personally and has had the privilege of learning from her both in the classroom and out of the classroom, I ask you to join me on Sept. 9, and vote Tripp!
