Letter: People are most important part about government

Published 8:24 pm Thursday, September 27, 2018

The season of soup and pie suppers has begun. Central Freeborn Lutheran Church just had its soup and pie supper (one of my favorites) this past Monday. I was very sad to have missed it, as I was home sick, but some good friends were nice enough to bring me back some soup and pie, so I was able to have a taste. Scrumptious!

One of my favorite parts of my job as state representative is to get out and around to events and visit with people — soup and pies, Wind Down Wednesday, farm field days, area coffees, etc. I believe people are the most important part of government and that the best ideas come from those who are living and working right here at home. That’s why I make a point to get out into our communities year-round to visit with people. I love talking and chatting with all of you, hearing what’s important in your lives and gathering your thoughts and ideas. It helps me be a better representative.

Thank you for the opportunity to serve you. It has been a true joy and honor. I would love to continue to be a strong voice for you at the Capitol with your vote this coming election!
