Ashley Ehasz grew up believing that stability was possible and families could thrive if they made the right choices. The oldest of three to a single mother, Ashley watched her family struggle with health, substance abuse, and affording their rent. At 17, she joined the Army knowing it was her best shot at affording a college education and finding stability. Ashley graduated from West Point, trained to be an Apache helicopter pilot, later served as a pilot-in-command in Iraq. She returned, attended graduate school, and started working for her local government. Ashley made all the right choices, but has still found herself doing all she can to keep stable while juggling her student loan debt, health care costs, and mortgage. She understands the everyday challenges families in her district are facing, and that they deserve to be represented by someone who will roll up their sleeves and do something about it.
We’re proud to endorse Ashley because she’s got skin in the game. She will be an outspoken advocate for those struggling most and we’re proud to endorse her.
