Community pride, dedication to service and a passion for people; these are traits of 45th Wisconsin State Assembly candidate Sheila DeForest.

Sheila is not your typical politician, and that is exactly why you want her to represent you. She listens, she takes what you tell her, moves forward with it and makes things happen.

Sheila’s work experience is vast, but no matter what, she is focused on creating a positive community. She has written countless grants to bring resources in for organizations in communities throughout the community. Sheila is always looking for opportunities to genuinely serve. Sheila worked to provide a service to her community that was lacking; she co-founded the Rock and Green County Sexual Assault Recovery Program, which assists sexual assault victims in emergency rooms.

Regardless of the organization, Sheila ensures the end result is beneficial to everyone. She gives those who do not normally have voices in government chances to be heard. In her four terms on the Beloit City Council, Sheila has become known for her queries and concerns about how council actions actually affect the constituency.

Sheila DeForest is a real representative, not a politician, and she deserves your vote Aug. 12.
