Letter: Vote for Nelson
To the Editor:
One of the most important qualifications in running for public office is leadership. Simply offering to "listen to residents" is not enough. My 9-year old son could do that.
Candidates for office need to be able to take ideas and plans and demonstrate leadership in order to transform those ideas into actions.
Which candidates have substantial leadership experience? Christopher Nelson is one of them.
He spent nine years serving our nation honorably in the U.S. military, and led teams of soldiers in several overseas operations. He has leadership experience in high-pressure situations, where communication and cooperation with others is critical to achieving goals.
Christopher Nelson has served our nation faithfully, demonstrated leadership, and he is ready to serve our great city of Red Wing as our next mayor.
