    Love Donna’s slogan…..Not Left. Not Right. Forward. It truly describes her views and her mission. I hope Utah District #1 voters support her and give her the chance to bring her positive philosophy and action-oriented methods to Washington. We need someone like Donna representing Utah.It is DEFINITELY time for a change.
