Letter: Croonquist deserves support

I would like to encourage the voters of the Willmar School District to support Dan Croonquist in his quest for a seat on the school board. I have known Dan for 37 years, watching him grow up and be successful in high school, college, and now as a pastor, father and husband.

His motivation for running is to give back to the community that he loves. His commitment to the community can be seen by looking at his volunteer activities, including being a board member of the Willmar Public School Foundation, the Willmar Public Schools facility task force, Cardinal Pride Board, a YMCA football, basketball, baseball and softball coach, board member of the Ridgewater Campus Ministry Board, and a board member of Thrivent Financial for Lutherans.

The schools are facing some very difficult decisions over the next few years and I believe that Dan will provide the thoughtful decision-making that will be critical to the board decisions. Please join me in supporting Dan for a seat on the Willmar School Board.
