Antidote to Unions


I’m supporting Mike Stoker and I hope you do as well. Our country and state have outspent our income for years, and the bills are coming due. Mike, and other moderates like Mike, have the courage, experience, and knowledge to guide our state through the coming storm. Nice people controlled by the unions have gotten us into this mess and it will take concerted effort by people like Mike Stoker to make the tough choices ahead.

Please join me and help Mike save our state.
