Letter: Dowse is proven manager and leader

To the Editor:

There are four mayoral candidates. I know two of them personally. These two would perform very well as mayor of Red Wing. I, however, believe that the best candidate for our community is Sean Dowse

Having known Sean for over 20 years, I have been impressed with his community involvement. As managing director, he guided the Sheldon Theatre into a highly acclaimed regional destination for the performing arts. Sean also acted as chairman of the governing board of the Anderson Center for Interdisciplinary Studies for many years. As we all are aware, it is an internationally recognized destination for artists of many venues.

Sean is highly respected within a number of sectors of the region and the state for his advocacy of Red Wing as a community as well as for the arts in general in Minnesota.

Sean is a proven manager and leader and is totally capable of performing the duties of mayor of Red Wing. He is fully committed to his home – Red Wing.

My wife, Marilyn, and I ask for your support by voting for Sean Dowse for mayor of Red Wing in the primary election Aug. 9 and the general election in November.
