Dear Editor:

I support Shanna Danielson, a candidate with vision and integrity for State Representative in the 92nd Legislative District.

Dawn Keefer, the incumbent, has voted against legislation that would grant survivors of childhood sexual abuse and rape by Catholic clergy the ability to find peace and solace in allowing for a 2-year window to confront their childhood rapists and abusers through the courts. Her callous response of "the constitution" on Twitter to survivors of sexual abuse who posed the question, “Why did you vote against protecting survivors of childhood sexual abuse like me?” was stunning. 

I recently received what appeared to be a taxpayer funded campaign letter from Keefer’s legislative office stating her vow to vote against HB1872, HB273 and HB2227 — legislation that would strengthen gun safety measures across the Commonwealth. She has voted no on HB2060 in favor of domestic abusers. Danielson has vowed to vote YES for common sense gun laws.

As a 2016 candidate for the 92nd Legislative House seat and as a lifelong Independent, I endorse Shanna Danielson to represent the 92nd Legislative District. Shanna is a bipartisan thinker, open and responsive to the broader political conversation. Her success as a public school music teacher, including at my alma mater, the Cumberland Valley School District, speaks to her leadership ability, and dedication to excellence. She is a fearless advocate for children and adults alike.

As a survivor of childhood sexual abuse, and one who loves her region and the people who live here, I am voting for Shanna Danielson because she cares about me, my family and my neighbors. Please cast a vote for Shanna Danielson and wipe Harrisburg clean of partisan legislators who hold office for self-interest.
