Nash’s experience shows quality leadership abilities


To the editor:


How do you measure a candidate?

A candidate for political office should possess at least two qualities. First, the individual must have a set of solid well based core beliefs that transmit themselves all the way up to a consistent and balanced public policy. Second, the candidate must have an understanding and ability to act upon the issues.

I have met Jim Nash and assessed this individual in all the ways I know. As mayor of Waconia, Jim Nash has demonstrated the ability to provide political leadership on behalf of Waconia and the surrounding region and has demonstrated an understanding of the issues that face us today. He has effectively worked to reduce taxes in Waconia and would be an articulate individual who can work with individuals, businesses, and industry leaders to help the citizens of not only Carver County, but Minnesota, thrive.

We need to send more individuals with conservative values to the state legislature. If we don’t do this, Minnesota will collapse under the tax burdens, transportation costs and increased health care costs that continue to rise under our current administration. It makes a great deal of sense to send Jim Nash to the represent the citizens of District 47A.
