House Speaker thanks Rep. Crawford

Dear Editor:

Legislators take constituent work seriously, but Rep. Roger Crawford’s conscientious approach brings things to a whole new level.

Consider this: A local resident recently placed an ad in an area newspaper to thank Rep. Crawford for his assistance on a particular issue. Such displays of public appreciation are rare, but it shows just how connected Rep. Crawford is with the people in District 8B.

Rep. Crawford is a refreshingly observant, principled man who stays above the fray when things sometimes turn contentious in the House. He prefers to speak with actions, letting his votes to control state spending, reform government and protect local taxpayers do the talking.

Rep. Crawford gained enormous respect at home and in St. Paul during his first year in the House. The Legislature is a better place to work because of his influence and the residents of District 8B are fortunate to have him as their State Representative.

Speaker Kurt Zellers
