Letter: Thanks to the DFL candidates
To the editor,
As we move past Election Day and on to the holidays, I would like to take a moment to thank our DFL candidates: Dave Laidig (Minnesota House, Lakeville), Bev Topp (Minnesota House, Farmington/Northfield area), Steve Sarvi (U.S. Congress), Al Franken (U.S. Senate) and Barack Obama (U.S. President), for choosing to run for elected office this year.
Candidates and their families make many personal sacrifices during a sometimes long and grueling campaign and we appreciate their effort and willingness to serve. Thank you also to our many dedicated volunteers, our DFL staff and all the voters who came out to support these capable, committed candidates.
Carolyn Sampson is chair of DFL Senate District/County Unit 36.
