I am writing a letter in support of Carolyn Long. As a graduate student of WSU Vancouver, I have known Carolyn as a professor and know that she is solution oriented, open minded, and enjoys learning different perspectives. Carolyn is particularly well suited to our current national climate as she has made the study of the United States and its laws her life's passion. Our political climate has been consumed by partisan bickering and a desire to win at any cost. Yet our country can only move forward when we put rule of law and concern for the people over our desire to "win politics". This is what Carolyn Long and her slogan "People over Politics" is all about.
