To the Editor:
Marty Kelly is my friend. For some, that immediately discounts any endorsement I have for him for Sheriff of Goodhue County. I simply beg to differ.
I’ve known Marty for 35 years. We were friends as boys, as young men and today I’m still proud to call him my friend.
For as long as I’ve known Marty, he has been committed to service and leadership. When many of us were making our plans to “escape” our hometown after college, Marty was always committed to returning and giving back to the place that had given him and his family so much.
Marty has been a tireless public servant. His record of achievement is exemplary. You can read his impressive resume anywhere, but if you want a real endorsement, talk to any of the hundreds of kids whose lives he has positively impacted as a coach, mentor, and liaison officer.
Kelly is a good man who is committed to the people of Goodhue County. He is also my friend and always will be. Please vote Kelly for sheriff on Nov. 2.
