Would Monica Stonier Really Bring “Common Sense?”

by lewwaters

By all outward appearance, 17th Legislative District candidate for Representative, Monica Stonier is a lovely young lady and a good school teacher. But, she isn’t campaigning to be a teacher in Olympia, but a Representative of the people.

You will be hard pressed to find any positive mention of either in the pages of the Columbian, but will readily find several negative mentions of each.
