A couple of years ago I wrote a letter about my boss Dave Baker, before he was elected into office. Back then, I talked about working for a guy that believed in his employees. I was the one that shared about my journey with addiction and how much Dave cares about his employees.

Well, two years later I must say I thought he would be detached from work more than he has been. This summer we experienced a major flood at Super 8. Dave was at the hotel all night doing everything he could to save the first floor from severe damage.

When I came to work the next day, and the weeks to follow, our owner never wavered from his attitude of getting things done. He didn't have insurance and I could tell he was very concerned about the financial aspect, but he always had a calm demeanor. He never lost his cool and when our hours were cut back because we didn't have as many rooms to rent, he had our housekeeping staff help with renovations, painting, cleaning, etc.

We are grateful for him protecting us as much as he could during this difficult time.

So, two years later, we are proud to call our owner, Dave Baker, our state representative. He never forgot us and helps us just like before.

I sure hope he can go back to St. Paul because he helps hundreds of people with mental health, addiction issues, health care reform and more. He has a gift for getting things done with patience and respect. I can't think of anyone better to be my voice in state government. I'm very proud of him.
