To the Editor:
I would like to encourage the citizens of Martin County to write in "Judy Beckman" for the Martin Soil and Water Conservation District supervisor for Area 3. Judy and her husband Ed have lived in Silver Lake Township for more than 30 years and have adopted many conservation practices on their property. Judy also has served as a volunteer for the Department of Natural Resources because of her passion and interest in the environment and ecology.
Although I'm not an expert on the issues that the Soil and Water Board deals with, I do know a lot about working with boards, and I can tell you from experience that Judy will be a hard-working and dedicated supervisor. Based on my experiences working with Judy on the Southwest Minnesota American Red Cross Board, once a concern or issue is identified, she will do her homework and make an informed decision. While serving as a Red Cross volunteer, Judy was an effective instructor and a strong leader. Both of these skills would be a real asset to the board in helping educate the public and the decision-makers on the issues facing the board.
Martin County is fortunate to have a candidate who is passionate and skilled - and that candidate is Judy Beckman. Please write in "Judy Beckman" for your Martin Soil and Water Conservation District supervisor for Area 3. Thank you.
