During the last two years, Minnesota's needs have become urgent: bonding, access to high speed internet, and transportation. However, the last legislative session ground to a standstill with nothing done. In my district, I look to the representative that affected positive change and momentum, who is clearly Mary Sawatsky.

First, Mary is knowledgeable. As I watched her during the League of Women Voters and Isaiah events, she exhibited a broad grasp of facts, history, and politics.

Second, Mary has boundless energy and reliability. She visited every township, and did not duck out of a "Meet the Candidate" event last spring.

Third, she has proven she can get the important work of our state done, by paying back the loan from public schools and looking for long-term transportation and broadband solutions. She also passed property tax relief.

Also,Mary is honest, taking no special-interest monies, only money from regular citizens. Think of what a rarity that is in this election.

Finally, as an educator, Mary supports strengthening not only our K-12 system, but helping to lighten the load for some of our most strapped citizens - our college students, leaving with an average of $30,000 in debt.

Rather than be in thrall to special interests, Mary wants all of our lives to become better. Vote for the candidate with a positive vision who gets things done. Vote for Mary.

Jill R. Benson
