Reader Opinion: Re-elect Ruud and Lueck


Your article on the award for Carrie Ruud reflected she is intelligent, articulate, respected and represents our area with dedication.

Aitkin and Crow Wing counties are fortunate to be represented by Dale Lueck and Carrie Ruud. They are intelligent, professional and dedicated to representing our outstate counties. They are hard working and it isn’t a 40 hour work week to them just during the session. I know they work many long hours nearly every week of the year. They attend late night meetings and travel the area constantly for us.

There’s no reason to replace either of these proven intelligent, dedicated people. There is a slim majority in the Minnesota Senate and electing Carrie will keep the Legislature balanced. There is a slim Democrat majority in the Minnesota House and we need to keep Dale’s common sense voice in the House. Both are proven electable. Our counties need respected representation.
