Elections matter | Leif Bjornson

Leader letters to the editor
You can see on our Main Street (and some would say you can feel) what our current “leadership” has meant for our small city. Now our mayor is running for re-election. Fool me twice? I don’t think so! And his buddy, the guy who presented nooses to our city council (and said he thought it would be funny!) is now running for a seat on the council. Is this the kind of judgment we want in our leaders?
Fortunately, we have a great guy running for mayor in Kirk Anderson. He is a firefighter, a first responder, a small-business owner, a husband and a parent to a bunch of stellar kids. He is currently our council president and is a calm and courageous leader. He will be an excellent mayor!
In District 2 Craig Lien will represent us in the same way, with thoughtful, honest leadership.
In District 1 we are blessed to have Joe Snyder step up. He too is a smart, calm and steady guy who will be a great member of the council. Be sure to write in Joe Snyder!
These uncertain and challenging times will pass and we will move on. As we do we will either have leaders who drag us down and thwart progress or we will choose Kirk, Craig and Joe to lead us with the vision to move forward and get things done!
Please call St. Croix Falls City Hall at 715-483-3929 to find out how you can safely vote.
We are all in this together and more than ever we need courageous leadership. Call your friends, call your neighbors and please vote!
