As faith leaders and members of the local community, we are pleased to announce our endorsement of state Rep. Sue Scherer for her re-election as state representative for the 96th district in the 2018 election.
Rep. Scherer has worked tirelessly to serve area residents and we commend the work she has done in this position. Serving people and bettering our community is a journey that requires constant effort and dedication. We know Rep. Scherer is the right person for the job.
Serving the needs of the people requires an individual of good moral character and a genuine passion for helping others. Our support for Rep. Scherer is because we believe she possesses the passion and genuine compassion needed to serve the people of our area.
There is much work to be done in the continuous effort to better the lives of the people in the 96th District. Rep. Scherer has proven to be an advocate of the people and for critical issues that impact our community at large. Rep. Scherer is an ally to the faith community and a person who truly cares about the people she represents.
It is for these reasons that we — Pastors T. Ray McJunkins, Silas Johnson, Anthony Bondon, Lee Arthur Crawford, Donald Mayes and Barry West, all of Springfield; and Pastors Vivian Clarington and Marvin Joyner, both of Decatur — support Rep. Sue Scherer for re-election to represent the 96th District with a strong and empowering voice.
Once again our communities will be made even better.
Pastor T. Ray McJunkins
