PAID LETTER: Your vote needed at primary election

To the editor:

You don’t hire a chef to change your oil. He wasn’t trained for that job.

You don’t hire a dentist to cater your wedding. That’s not his forte.

You don’t hire a manicurist to change your brake pads. She never studied that.

You don’t elect a greenhorn who’s had no experience in education, government or public service. He’s not qualified to serve as a state legislator.

Jeff Backer has been mayor, school board member and EMT attendant. All those previous activities will serve him well when we elect him to serve as our state representative in District 12A. He’s not a chef or a dentist or a manicurist, but he’s well qualified to serve as our state representative.

But he can’t serve us in the state Legislature if we don’t vote for him.

If you are a registered voter in 12A, you are qualified to take part in Minnesota politics.

Are you in 12A? Do you know where you vote in the primary? Are you a responsible citizen? Will you be among the 40 percent who don’t vote?
