Active listener

I’ve listened to candidate forums, read questions and answers in multiple publications, and talked to candidates directly. I find that Olivia Diaz is an active listener, pays attention to what is being asked and provides direct, sensible, understandable answers to questions.

I want someone in office who is an active listener, will respond to her constituency, and has leadership experience that is relevant for a diverse and demanding county constituency. I support Olivia Diaz.
