Golden, CO (PRWEB) September 26, 2010
Cedar Dog for Mayor has a “nose” for picking winners, which is why she will give her “bark of approval” for Jefferson County Commissioner candidate Kathy Hartman’s re-election bid to fellow dogs and their people on Sunday, September 26, 2010 at the Dog Park Festival in Arvada, CO. Cedar will make the announcement at her event booth at 10:30am.
Cedar chose the festival event for her endorsement “to mark” the work of two-leggeds, and to remind fellow canines the importance of “celebrating our humans.” The curly-coated Chesapeake Bay retriever and her owner said, “We need two-legged backing to make projects for animals work.” In Jefferson County, humans like Kathy Hartman have championed parks for dogs, built the new Foothills Animal Shelter, and have passed laws to ensure that “pets and their people” have safer communities.
Current Jefferson County Commissioner, Kathy Hartman is “our champion,” Cedar's owner said, “Hartman’s doggedness” helped make the new Foothills Animal Shelter a reality. She has personally contributed to Cedar’s crusade to raise money to build the shelter and urged others to do the same. “Hartman gets partnership, the importance of humans and animals working side-by-side.”
The Cedar for Mayor Campaign is working to raise funds for the new Foothills Animal Shelter Foundation. Cast your vote for Cedar and her feline running mate Hillary at http://www.CedarforMayor.com. Cedar is working with Kathy Hartman and her dog Clover to truly make a difference and get "paw-litical for the animals." A vote cast with every $1 donation to Cedar’s campaign goes to the shelter fund.
