As executive director of Rite of Passage which is based in Minden, Lawrence Howell has provided strong leadership and an effective strategic plan that has resulted in a balanced budget and an expansion of services during these tough economic times. Rite of Passage has 880 employees in six states from Baltimore to Sacramento. Lawrence has spoken before the legislatures in three of those states. His business experience will prove invaluable to Douglas County. Join me and vote for Lawrence Howell.
