FRESH CUTS

Nunn’s strength: caring community through corporate involvement

Nunn

In his earlier defense of Michelle Nunn over accusations that Points of Light “gave money to terrorists” while she led the organization, Neil Bush went on to praise Nunn for demonstrating “the right kind of visionary leadership – a non-partisan or bipartisan approach to our service world.”

It is precisely that approach to serving the public at all levels that makes her such an appealing candidate, and why she has been leading in the most recent three polls, albeit within the margin-of-error. Her work demonstrates she is authentically engaged in making the world a better place for everyone, rich or poor, Republican or Democrat.
