I enjoy writing about women I believe ought to be involved into politics. On this Valentines Day, I want to tell you about Sharolyn Hohman who is running for Goodyear City Council. I’m told early ballots were mailed this morning, and the citizens of Goodyear will want to know more about their options.
The purpose for me writing this story has much to do with a grieving mother. Many of my readers might recall a story I wrote
here with regard to Shay Pendleton, an Arizona mother who continues to grieve over the unsolved mystery and the death of her son in Goodyear, Arizona. This is an unsolved mystery with regard to the Goodyear Police Department, and you can hear Shay’s story here via the Lou Show. [In my personal view, both Wally Campbell and Joe Pazillo are two city council members that should NOT be re-elected into office since they have pretty much spit on this grieving mother.]
That said, Shay and I went to an event recently hosted for Sharolyn Hohman at the Caballero Restaurant, and I must say I was impressed with Hohman’s political resume. I believe she can turn it around in Goodyear City and has tremendous background and support from business owners. She served as the President and CEO of the Southwest Valley Chamber of Commerce for 25 years. She is a business professional with a BA from Grand Canyon University and a Masters from Northern Arizona University and has received numerous honors over the span of her career. According to her mass mailer, she has hands-on, long-term involvement with the City of Goodyear and all of the West Valley.
