In the race for State Senate, Steve Wenzel is, without question, the most qualified candidate and would be the most effective legislator for the people of Morrison, Crow Wing, Aitkin and Mille Lacs counties.

I had the privilege of serving as Morrison County Commissioner for 24 years. During that time I attended many meetings in St. Paul with Representative Wenzel. I saw first hand how effective Steve was in getting important projects funded for our district and needed legislation to resolve critical county issues. Whether it was getting funding for county road projects, problems with the DNR or funding for major projects like the $54 million four-lane Highway 371 between Little Falls and Brainerd or the creation of the beautiful Minnesota Veterans Cemetery near Camp Ripley, Wenzel always delivered. Steve was most knowledgeable and absolutely masterful in his grasp of the legislative process.

Vote Steve Wenzel on Tuesday, Aug. 9.
