I am writing this letter in support of Stephanie Elsen. When I was serving on the Port Authority, I asked Stephanie to apply and serve on the Board. She agreed, even after she learned of the many challenges we were working through. She made a commitment, and showed the willingness, to become a part of that Board, helping to make decisions that were in the best interest of the public. Stephanie was required to make a difficult decision within weeks of being appointed. All of her decisions were made with conscientious objectives and understanding of the details. As my term ended, I knew the Port Authority was in good hands with Stephanie on board. I believe that Stephanie will make a great Council Member for the City of Red Wing.
This is a paid endorsement letter to the editor.
