Letter: Choose Sawatzky

Election Day is drawing near, and perhaps you haven't decided which candidate would best represent District 17B in the state Legislature. In my opinion, the choice is very clear.

Mary Sawatzky has your best interests at heart and in mind. She has vigorously campaigned throughout the past months, knocking on countless doors, wanting to learn from you, the people, the concerns that face this district. Mary is pragmatic, energetic, knowledgeable on the issues, and most of all, possesses a determined drive to help people.

I had the privilege of working with Mary for many years at the Willmar Middle School and know firsthand the dedication and determination she demonstrates in her job as an educator. I believe this same dedication and drive will translate into her role as our next state representative. Her integrity and sense of purpose are what is needed at the state Capitol to restore an atmosphere of compromise and collaboration in the Minnesota Legislature.
