Letter about serving Fillmore and Houston Counties...


Mon, Oct 20th, 2014
Posted in Preston Letter to the Editor

To the Editor,

It’s been a privilege to serve the residents of Fillmore and Houston Counties. Over the years, I’ve worked hard to increase funding for local schools and rural nursing homes, improve our economic development and our agricultural economy, and lower your personal tax burdens.

The most enjoyable part of my jobs as state representative is working with local residents to help them achieve their goals, such as creating a veterans’ cemetery in District 28B and securing funding for the Chatfield Center for the Arts.

I understand that you must work closely with both Republicans and Democrats if you want to get something accomplished at the State Capitol. Over the past four years, statistics show that I rank in the top four of Minnesota House lawmakers when you analyze bipartisan voting records. I’m proud of my bipartisanship and am pleased to have established friendships with many state lawmakers on both sides of the aisle.

But the past is the past, and I’m strongly focused on the future of southeastern Minnesota. If I am fortunate enough to earn your trust, I will continue my quest to prioritize our local schools, eliminate wasteful spending in state government, ensure that highway and bridge improvement funding is being secured, and improve the job climate in our great state.

I’ve been humbled by your past support, and it would be my honor to serve as your state representative once again. I respectfully ask for your vote on November 4.

Greg Davids

State Representative

District 28B

Preston, Minn.
