I’m proud to say that Laurie has been my friend and professional colleague for 20+ years. In this time I have come to respect Laurie’s unique sense of duty concerning elected positions. She will go far to ensure that no impropriety has taken place by her, and often that means her self-sacrificing. Laurie is absolutely what we need in all elected officials; informed, honest, and thoughtful. No doubt she will work hard for Tuolumne County. She is certainly an easy candidate to endorse! Truly a role model for who we need in political office.
