Your Views: Mike Sheridan has shown, in state Senate race, he won’t back down

Mike Sheridan and I have been friends from the time we were kids growing up. When Mike said he wanted to run for state Senate, I told him not to do it. My concern for my friend was that he would be attacked on all fronts.

Mike was convinced that he was going to run because he cares about the citizens in the 15th Senate District. As the campaign has evolved, I believe Mike made the right decision. The response on the doors has been very positive. I know because I’ve been on the doors.

I have a tremendous amount of respect for Mike for stepping up to the plate. I described it this way: He’s in the batter’s box, they’re throwing high inside fastballs at his head, and he doesn’t back down. That’s the type of leader we need to represent the 15th Senate District.

Mike has passion, a proven record of getting things done, and the relationships needed so he can hit the ground running. I know he will do everything he can to bring jobs to the 15th Senate District.

Please support Mike on Aug. 12. You won’t be disappointed.
