To the editor:
The race for state representative in District 11A is heating up – and Torrey Westrom says he is all about renewable energy because he went on the “renewable energy road trip” this summer. It is one thing to go on a tour; it is another to actually support renewable energy efforts.
Westrom voted to cut funding for Clean Energy Resource Teams. He voted to repeal renewable energy standards. You can’t claim to support clean, alternative energy while, in reality, supporting coal?fired electricity at the same time – yet Westrom has.
Yes, it is all about jobs – but the jobs should be in the clean energy sector first and foremost. Bennett Smith understands that. He has the integrity and backbone to move rural Minnesota forward by supporting the creation of jobs that will point us toward clean energy solutions for the future.
It is common sense and it is time for a change. We need someone like Bennett Smith to support our communities and our area. That’s why I am voting for Bennett Smith to be my representative in the Minnesota Legislature.
Nancy E. Carpenter
