To the editor:
I have worked with Gary Dahms that past two years since his election to the Minnesota State Senate. I have found him approachable and willing to sit down and discuss the issues. His follow through on projects has been exceptional. I consider him to be a very trustworthy individual.
Gary was born and raised on a farm, and was active in 4H and FFA as a youth. While working in his insurance business, many of his clients were farmers and agribusiness people. Therefore, he has been involved in agriculture his entire life.
Gary currently serves as the vice chairman of the Senate Agriculture and Rural Economies committee. He is keenly aware of the issues that farmers and agribusiness people face in rural Minnesota. These issues affect all of us living in a rural economy.
Gary has worked successfully with members of both parties to pass an Agriculture Finance Bill, which funded agricultural research along with several other programs. He was a key player in the passage of the Agriculture Policy Bill that was signed by Governor Dayton this year. This bill included some changes in permitting, rules and regulations, which help agricultural producers and agribusiness.
I have spent my entire life involved in agriculture, and I believe Gary has the ability to bring people together for the betterment of all. Please join me in supporting Gary Dahms for another term in the Minnesota State Senate.
