To the Editor:
Tuesday again provides all of us with our greatest opportunity and right - to vote. We all have important decisions to make when casting our ballot.
Our focus tends to be on national and state races. Don’t overlook the significant votes we will each cast at the local level. Leadership in Red Wing is every bit as important as leadership in Washington and St. Paul.
Locally, Lisa Bayley has demonstrated leadership on our City Council and I know she will continue to lead going forward. Just as at the federal and state level, Red Wing is facing critical decisions. Lisa has shown she can lead us through challenging times. She has helped Red Wing through difficult budget decisions, developed a strategic plan that will safeguard that budget, ensured that Bay Point Park and the river front will remain a place our families can enjoy, and created a mining ordinance to protect our bluffs and the beauty of our city.
When you enter the voting booth on Tuesday, remember, a vote for Lisa Bayley is a vote for an individual committed to maintaining Red Wing as the great community we all want.
