To the editor:
I am writing to support Gary Dahms for election to the Minnesota Senate in District 16. I have known Mr. Dahms for many years and have watched and admired his dedication to the community.
Gary has been a fixture in the Redwood Falls area business community by being honest and fair. As a community member he has taken the initiative to contribute as a volunteer in many organizations. From church to service organizations and non profit foundations, Gary has always worked hard and kept the best interests of the greater community in mind.
One instance was when the local school district was considering bringing ag education back into the curriculum. Gary was there making sure we would have a quality program and how to fund it. This was a community effort with Gary volunteering to lead.
Gary does these things because it is the right thing to do. Growing up, Gary benefited from hands on leadership experiences in FFA and 4-H and knows the value of these programs for keeping Minnesota a great place to live and raise a family.
More and more people are disappointed by the polarization in Minnesota politics and issues being hijacked by the extremes. The solution to our political dilemma is to have someone in St. Paul that has a strong common sense voice speaking for you and me while listening to the needs of the rest of the citizens of the state and then making decisions that will make a positive impact. Gary has already shown that he can stand for what is right and not play the political games.
On election day I will be voting for Gary Dahms because he is part of the solution. I would urge you to do the same.
