Update from State Rep Beth Folsom
Update: June 9,2021
I am responding after two hard fought days trying to get good pieces of legislation passed. None of us are perfect and I have made my share of freshman mistakes. We lost some key battles due to some extremely weak Republicans. Those are the ones you should be focusing on.
Have you participated in hearings this year? Have you sent notes of encouragement when a legislator votes according to our constitution? Have you started recruiting strong constitutional candidates yet? Are you recruiting, training, and raising funds yet? Have you paid the costs of sending legislators to the ALEC conference? Or Wallbuilders Pro-Family Legislative conference? Here’s an easier one, how about mowing their lawn, splitting wood, or helping them get their gardens planted? We are not all wealthy, young, and healthy but still often give 40 plus hours a week on legislative work for a whopping 100 bucks a year.
Spend some time building up the slightly imperfect legislators or you will loose them and end up with democrats instead.
My final word, PRAY for these hard working legislators. Pray without ceasing!
God bless, Beth
