Letter - McNamar is dedicated to his beliefsWhen I think of the person I’d like to represent me in the Minnesota House of Representatives, I think of Jay McNamar.
To the editor:
When I think of the person I’d like to represent me in the Minnesota House of Representatives, I think of Jay McNamar. I’d like someone who understands what makes our communities great. Jay and his wife Robin have lived in the community for 41 years, worked here and raised a family here.
I’ve always believed that everyone deserves the best education we can provide. Education is the key to getting a good job and living the American dream. As one of his former students, I know he is dedicated to his beliefs. Jay was a teacher and coach for 36 years.
I think our legislators should be public servants. Beyond being a teacher, Jay served in the Elbow Lake Fire Department and still serves as an EMT. Jay is currently the mayor of Elbow Lake, which means he understands how state actions affect our local communities and how property tax hikes brought on by the elimination of the Homestead Credit are hurting our small businesses.
We have an opportunity to elect a great person and a great public servant. I’ll proudly be voting for Jay McNamar on November 6 and I know he’ll make a great representative for District 12A.
Elbow Lake, MN
