  • “Penny Shaw and I crossed paths years ago as we both served our constituents in our respective roles. There, I had the opportunity to observe and evaluate her passion and dedication to her work. Having the required legislative experience to represent District 148, Penny understands the importance of building a relationship with her constituents and is willing to listen to identify the problems and needs of her district. Ms. Shaw is ethical, honest, trustworthy and self-motivated. She is ready to work for the people not special interests to forge a future for District 148 that is a direct reflection of responsible governance.
