A dog in the fight for Ellen Frost

I have known Ellen for two years, or 14 years as I measure time. Through no fault of my own I was homeless and had suffered all the ill effects that homelessness brings. Ellen has been a close friend and mentor these past two years as I have learned to adjust to a new set of expectations from my new human companion. Ellen has also done a good job of training my human companion to deal with my issues.

When I have needed a place to stay short term, Ellen has provided that place. She has shown compassion and interest in me as one of God's creatures. I have had the opportunity to see Ellen interact with animals and with humans. I have found that she is kind to all, just in her dealings, able to quickly grasp the big picture, and willing to promote the welfare of others. Aren't those attributes just what you want in a county commissioner?
