Letter: I'll deliver what citizens say they want

To the Editor:

Red Wing's short mayoral campaign is at its close; now the decision will be made by you, the voters. For one of the six candidates, the real work will begin. If I am that one, you will be my focus. During the past nine weeks many of you have told me what you expect from your mayor.

You deserve and I will deliver:

• Promotion of Red Wing to attract commerce

• Open two-way communication

• Visibility and availability

• Energy and commitment

• Courage to initiate change

• Forward thinking and new ideas

• Collaboration and compromise to move ahead

My experience in Red Wing, as a volunteer and as a member of the City Council, reminds me to keep the best interests of our whole community at the forefront when making decisions. I will continue to do this as your mayor.

I welcome your ideas; I need to hear from you. I will work tirelessly for you and for this fantastic, unique community.

Please vote on June 11.

Dan Bender
