My grandson is state Sen. Rich Alloway.
I am very proud of him and I love him very much.
Recently, a man announced his intention to run against my grandson. That is OK with me. What is not OK with me is that this man said things that I know, and anyone who keeps up with what is going on in Harrisburg knows, are just not true.
For the life of me, I do not understand how some people are willing to say or do anything just to get what they want.
I have always felt that being elected to a public office and serving the people was a trust from God. That's why I encouraged Rich to run for office.
My grandson may not be perfect, but he sure tries hard to do the right things. He works long days and tries to help the people.
People need jobs. Rich works hard to help bring companies to our area to provide good opportunities.
I have lived through some tough times and I know that's what people want right now, not nasty comments that are not true.
