Letter: Clausen makes good decisions

To the editor,

In many ways this November the very quality of life, which we Minnesotans enjoy, will be on the ballots. Our newly elected state leaders will be guiding us through economic and social challenges, which will impact our community for generations to come. We need men and women in state government who can be trusted to be honest, fair and open.

I have known Greg Clausen professionally and personally since 1981 when I moved to Apple Valley to begin teaching at Apple Valley High School. Greg's service to our community as assistant principal and principal at two of our district high schools has given me the opportunity to observe closely his leadership skills, core values and work ethic. What I have seen is a man of great integrity and compassion -- a man who has a balanced worldview and seeks to solicit input from many. Greg weighs options to form reflective, well-researched and transparent decisions. Greg Clausen is smart, candid and fair. He will listen to you. Please join me and vote for Greg Clausen for State Senate in the Aug. 14 primary and in the Nov. 6 general election.

Linda Albertson,
