LETTER: Kent will get the job done on transit, collaboration, education

There are lots of ways one can spend an afternoon. I have spent many door knocking for state Sen. Susan Kent, because I believe she has proven to be the leader our communities deserve.

As vice-chairwoman of the Senate Transportation Committee, Kent has been a champion for our bipartisan efforts to bring public transit to the east metro.

As a leader in the Senate Purple Caucus, she is committed to collaborating with her colleagues to find common ground and bring comity in an era of gridlock.

As an untiring advocate for our children she authored a bill that seeks to remedy our dismal student to counselor ratio here in Minnesota. Because of Kent’s efforts, Minnesota schools will be able to bring in the resources to help our children succeed.

I trust Sen. Susan Kent to get the job done.
