We support Sen. Haugen

We are writing you this letter in support of our mother, Senator Mary Margaret Haugen. This is the first time in her political career that all four of her children have felt the need to speak out. Our mother has worked tirelessly for all of the citizens of the 10th District, not just Democrats or Republicans, but for all people. We are writing you this letter because we are deeply offended by all of the negative “Hit” pieces that have been mailed out by her opponent’s supporters.

We are writing you this letter in support of our mother, Senator Mary Margaret Haugen. This is the first time in her political career that all four of her children have felt the need to speak out. Our mother has worked tirelessly for all of the citizens of the 10th District, not just Democrats or Republicans, but for all people. We are writing you this letter because we are deeply offended by all of the negative “Hit” pieces that have been mailed out by her opponent’s supporters.

We find it very offensive when it is implied that our mother has “changed”. As her children, we can assure you she has not changed. Her work ethic and concern for the citizens of the 10th District has always been unwavering. Her historical knowledge of the 10th District should be considered a valuable asset and not devalued as one “Hit” piece suggested. We were taught that work experience does matter; in all professions. Newer doesn’t necessarily equal better.

Three of her children still reside in the 10th District. We have worked and raised our families in this area. Our mother is keenly aware of what is happening in all of our lives. She has always been concerned with what is happening in our workplaces and in our children’s schools. She understands the struggles that we have all faced.

What we would most like to pass along, however, is that our family is just like everyone else’s family. There are periods of time when painful situations arise and our mother taught us, by example, that as long as you have kept your side of the street clean, you just have to ask for grace, hold your head up and walk through the tough times with as much dignity as possible. That is who our mother is.

So we are asking that you please remember who our mother really is and her tremendous contributions to the 10th District when casting your vote.

Sincerely,

MaryBeth Fisher, Kathy Haugen Heitt, Richard Haugen and James Haugen
