Surviving Breast Cancer Has Given Julie Stokes a New Legislative Purpose

She has announced her running for Secretary of State

With the blessings of her family, friends, constituents, and doctors, the reform-minded legislator has announced her candidacy for becoming the next Secretary of State. “I have tremendous respect for the proud history of this office, its role in protecting the integrity of our election system, and the service it provides to entrepreneurs. I will strive to improve upon what I can, remove the obstacles that drag the office back, restore morale across the entire department, and ensure that our elections are fair, honest, secure, and carried out with professionalism,” said Stokes.
