Dear Editor,

Allow me to introduce myself and take a few moments of your day to tell you about my husband, Elijah. My name is Ashley Behnke, and I’ve been married to Elijah for 8 1/2 years and we are raising our two wonderful children in the 89th Assembly district. Because I know him better than anyone else, I can tell you that, without a doubt, he’s the best man for the job.

Elijah comes from a farming and small business family. Hard work is all he knows. He will work just as diligently for the people of our district as he does for the clients of his small business. He is passionate about keeping our district safe and our water clean for your family as well as ours.

We are raising our family in this beautiful district and are invested in the success and conservation of our community.

My favorite quality about Elijah is that he does everything knowing God is his ultimate judge. His consistent growing faith has instilled in him an unshakable moral compass that guides his every decision, including stepping out in faith to run for the 89th Assembly seat.‪ Please vote for Elijah Behnke on Feb. 16‬. If you’d like to learn more about Elijah’s personal convictions and policy positions, please visit or on Facebook at Elijah Behnke for assembly.
