Writer supports Emmer in race for 6th district seat

 To the editor:

Statesman: What does one think of when they hear the word “statesman?” A highly respected and influential political leader who exhibits great ability and devotion to public service.

I know of such a man. His name is Tom  Emmer and he is running as the Republican candidate for Congress in the 6th Congressional District of Minnesota. Emmer, a former three-term state representative, has been married to Jacqueline for 24 years and they have 7 children.

Family is why Tom Emmer entered the political arena nearly a decade ago. Four generations of Emmers have enjoyed Minnesota’s prosperity. Tom wants to ensure the next generation of Minnesotans will be blessed with the same opportunities.

I support Tom Emmer for Congress because of his commitment to his three-terms in office, his wife of 24 years and their seven children.

A politician thinks of the next election. A statesman, of the next generation….James Freeman Clarke. This is Tom Emmer.
