Six years ago, the Brian and Kelly Anderson family went through a terrible dilemma involving their desire to adopt a precious little girl by the name of Maddy. They had already taken into their hearts and home three children from Allen County. Then the Andersons were asked to provide respite care for Maddy for a couple of days. As weeks turned into months and Maddy’s birth mother was in no position to raise Maddy, she wanted the Andersons to adopt and raise Maddy.
But sometimes, the heavy hand of government refuses to listen to “we the people,” and they do not do what is right.
The case went all the way to the Supreme Court of Ohio, and justice was rendered and Maddy came home to her family.
During the time of these events, Angie King, as a caring citizen and friend of the Andersons, got involved. Angie got involved, and it eventually led her to go to Columbus with Brian and Kelly to meet with a member of the state legislature in an effort to bring about foster care reform. Why? Because it was needed and necessary.
King has demonstrated that she understands this, as she has both worked in the private and public sector. Shortly after Angie began serving as the Mercer County Recorder, I observed improvements in how that office was run as I had occasion to frequent that office.
My wife and I wholeheartedly support King as she prepares to serve the 84th District as your representative in Columbus. She has a wealth of lifetime experiences to draw from as she serves “we the people” of Mercer, Darke and Auglaize counties in Columbus.
