Support Ernest Stone:
I encourage Red Wing residents of Ward 4 to vote for Ernie Stone to be your council representative.
As a resident and home owner of Red Wing since the 1970s I have followed city issues closely over the years. Well over a decade ago I met Ernie Stone at a meeting of the Hiawatha Toastmasters leadership club.
On many occasions I have seen Ernie go, (above and beyond) working hard behind the scenes at charitable and civic events to the benefit of others.
Over the years I listened to Ernie present competently on wide ranging civic topics. He also provides encouraging feedback to others. I learned Ernie has many qualities that a City Council representative should have. Ernie has a rare gift of being a good and respectful listener. He also will ask detailed questions to learn more about a topic. Ernie is inclusive he seeks to understand other points of view.
When Ernie takes a position on a matter before him it will be a strong position based on, listening, research and reason. Ernie will be very prudent with the spending of tax payer dollars.
A man with a quick wit and a warm heart. Ward 4 residents I encourage you talk with and vote for, Mr. Ernie Stone.
