Letter to the editor: Weik will lead with honor, dignity

I offer my support for the re-election of Washington County Commissioner Lisa Weik for District 5.

I was honored to have been elected twice from District 5 and served as county commissioner on the Washington County Board in the 1990s. As a former board member I continue to pay close attention to the issues facing our county and the decisions our commissioners make.

On numerous occasions I have had the pleasure of discussing County Board agenda items with Commissioner Weik. I have found her to be knowledgeable, understanding, and creative in finding workable solutions. She is not afraid to fight for what she believes is right.

Lisa Weik has served this year as vice chair of the County Board and with your help and support will be chairing it in 2013. She will lead the county honorably and with dignity.

Thanks to Commissioner Weik's initiative and leadership, Washington County residents are fortunate to have an extremely efficient county government. Our county tax rates are among the lowest in the state of Minnesota.

Lisa Weik has served the citizens of Washington County with enthusiasm and detailed knowledge of all issues affecting our future. If re-elected, Commissioner Weik will continue to work hard for her constituents and for what is right for District 5.

Please vote for Lisa Weik on Nov. 6.
