As a young family in Centre County, we work our hardest to provide every opportunity we can for our children. We also talk to our kids about the responsibilities that come with those opportunities. For them, responsibilities may be as simple as doing chores, helping out and working together. That makes us a great family, and it also goes a long way in getting them the things they want.
For us parents, it’s on a bigger scale; we pay taxes, we obey the laws, we do our research and vote for the people who we believe have our best interests at heart, and in turn, we live in an amazing community with valuable resources and a bright future.
The people who represent and respect our work ethic and well-being are Michael Pipe and Mark Higgins. Pipe has worked hard in many arenas over the past four years, fighting to make sure that Centre County is a safer place that takes care of its citizens. Higgins has saved and created hundreds of good-paying, family-sustaining jobs, and now wants to bring his talents to county government.
For those of us who work hard and want to see our community grow into something much greater, we must take responsibility in order to see the opportunities. We must vote for Pipe and Higgins on Nov. 3.
