Letter: Sawatsky has my vote

I want to thank Mary Sawatzky for the great conversation we had on my doorstep.

In our brief conversation, it was great to hear Mary's ideas on preventing invasive species from entering our water ways. We also talked about the need to balance our budget fairly and not do it on the backs of property tax payers. Lastly, we talked about how important it is to make Hwy 23 a four lane road all the way to St. Cloud and ideas to make Hwy 12 safer.

In 10 short minutes, Mary and I spoke about invasive species, the state budget, property taxes and transit. She even was kind enough to ask me how may family was doing.

I am going to vote for Mary. She is knowledgeable on a wide range of issues that are critical to west central Minnesota. Most importantly, from my conversation ... I believe she will put our needs first.
