Vote for Marty Kelly for Goodhue County Sheriff

It has been a long time since I wrote a letter for the paper. I now feel a strong need to write this letter of support for Marty Kelly who I have known both personally and professionally for over 20 years. In my almost 97 years on this earth, I have not known a better candidate for sheriff. Marty has great respect, passion, and interest in making this community a safer and healthier place to live. Having brought NAMI to Red Wing years ago, I am a strong believer and supporter of Marty's vision to help address the issues of mental health and alcohol and drug addiction in how it impacts both our community and law enforcement. As someone who has worked "the beat" he has firsthand knowledge of what is needed to keep our citizens safe while also understanding the challenges his fellow co-workers face on a daily basis. Know he already has my vote and I hope he will have yours too!

This is a paid endorsement letter to the editor.
