Echo Press Endorsement
"We believe DFLer Gail Kulp of Alexandria would be a strong catalyst for change in House District 8B. Although she'd be a newcomer to an elected office, she has a solid background in health care and working with families of children who have disabilities...Kulp would bring a calm, reasoned and respectful tone to the Legislature...Kulp deserves the opportunity to bring new solutions to the Legislature as District 8B representative."
I am humbled and grateful to be endorsed by the Echo Press of Alexandria, my hometown. It is hard to describe my deep feelings for the area that encompasses District 8B, but I feel it as I drive from place to place and as I knock on doors to introduce myself. My promise to be the voice for ALL the people of District 8B has been reinforced by the Echo’s support.
