Dear Friends:

Several months ago at the Builders Exchange, I had the opportunity to meet Pat Krueger. As soon as we met, I knew that she was the one Republican who actually had a chance to win the 7th District Assembly seat. She has experience as a state Senator in New Hampshire and has a “get things done attitude”. While in the Senate, she became known as the person who brought opposing sides together.

I believe that right now we need someone like Pat on our side in Sacramento. She lives in St. Helena and would represent our needs well in Sonoma and Napa Counties. Pat understands the needs of small business in California and is prepared to stand up for us in Sacramento. Right now is a critical time for her in the election process. She has shown the State Republican Party and the California Chamber of Commerce that she can raise money. The North Coast Builders Exchange, the Santa Rosa Chamber of Commerce, the Napa Chamber of Commerce, and many other concerned business groups are stepping up to the plate to endorse Pat. The Exchange and many of its members, including myself, have already made generous donations to her campaign.

A lot of people tell me that they have never really been politically involved. I used to be that way until I experienced the PAC Committee at the Exchange. It was eye opening for me. I have learned that we really can make a difference, but we have to get involved to create change. We all need to come together and support a positive future for business in California. If you have any questions, please feel free to call me and I will get the answers for you.
