To the editor:
I would like to take a moment to thank Mary Ellen Otremba for her years of service in the Legislature. As many are aware, Representative Otremba announced last week that she would not be seeking re-election this fall.
Throughout her career, Mary Ellen stood with a strong voice on issues that are important to our area, protecting unborn children and defending our Second Amendment rights. She faced tremendous pressure to buckle to party leaders on these subjects. Nevertheless, she stood firm and earned perfect scores from groups like Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life.
I wish Mary Ellen the best in everything she does going forward. She stands as a model of public leadership and personal integrity. I am proud to call her a friend.
