I’m trying to make an informed decision on the race for House of Representatives District 32 between Suzanne Weber and Debbie Boothe-Schmidt. I’ve been impressed by what I’ve seen and read about Weber.
Several weeks ago I got a mailer from Boothe-Schmidt’s campaign stating without detail that Weber had supported organizations that seek to limit women’s access to abortion. This concerned me. I believe women should have the right to make their own decisions about their body and health care.
I visited Weber’s website to find out her views. There is little on the site about where she stands on the issues, so I contacted her campaign via the website asking about her position on abortion. No response.
Then I received a mailer from Weber’s daughter stating that her mother’s views on women’s healthcare had been misrepresented in Boothe-Schmidt’s campaign materials. I reached out via the website again, asking for clarification on her position, if her views had been misrepresented. I am still waiting for a response.
I’m a registered Democrat but I will cross the aisle if the candidate is best for the community. I’d sure like an answer from Suzanne Weber.
