Endorsing Gaul for District 15 Senate seat

To the editor:

I am writing this letter to express my strong endorsement of Anita Gaul for Minnesota District 15’s Senate seat. In the years I’ve worked with her, I’ve found her to be a reasonable, enlightened colleague and a thoughtful, honest person. As an instructor, Anita is busy but – as all good instructors do – she makes time for her students because she legitimately cares about them and their futures.

While this experience may not initially appear to be a notable qualification for a senator, it is a good reason Anita is the top choice to be your representative. Because, when it comes down to it, she is the senator Southwest Minnesota needs: a senator who is sensible and willing to make difficult decisions in the best interest of all her constituents. Anita is the candidate who will work on your behalf — whether you typically vote red, blue, green, purple, or not at all — because she genuinely cares about the people of District 15. She is invested in the area’s success and its future.

Just like me, and many of you, Anita grew up in southwest Minnesota. And like us, she chose to build her life here — working and raising her children here — because she knows Southwest Minnesota. She embodies its best qualities — integrity, neighborliness, and hard work — and is familiar with its unique challenges. This background — along with her tenacity, cleverness, and collaborative spirit – make her remarkably suited to address such challenges.

Aside from the entertaining conversation, her sincerity and drive are the characteristics I appreciate most about her. During my time as the division chair, I knew I could always count on Anita to be thoughtful, timely, and objective. And so it is with great confidence that I recommend you vote for Anita Gaul. As your representative, I know she will serve you with the same vigor and integrity that she applies to her teaching; it’s just who she is. Vote for a senator who is hopeful, capable, and authentic – a daughter of Southwest Minnesota who does and will continue to represent the best in us.
