News Release: 
Friday, November 20, 2009

My name is Dannielle Garner, and I live in Edmonds. 

A lot of young people have never voted, but I have always voted from the time I turned 18.  Voting means a lot to me, because even though I am just one voice, I feel it counts in who is elected. 

I did commit a crime, but I am different today.  I am a law-abiding citizen.  I have not gotten into any trouble since then, and I don't plan on getting in any trouble!  I still owe some money to the state, but I am still a citizen.

I would really like to vote again.  Everyone should be able to have their say.
