"Jordan first came by our house in 2014 when he was running for office. A year after the election a tree fell on our house that was located in the county right of way. We had trouble getting the county to come out and remove the tree and we knew we could rely on Jordan. We reached out to him and soon thereafter the county came out to our home and removed the tree. Jordan made a difficult situation easier for us. He was immediately responsive  to our request for assistance and he helped us resolve the problem. We want him to represent us in the legislature because we know that he'll be there for us." - Marvin and Joan Rosenburg
