Thank you, Mike Gotfredson, for your leadership

Dear Editor:

On behalf of the Isanti County Self Advocacy group, we would like to thank Mike Gotfredson for his leadership roles and inspiring others.

Mike has been volunteering for the Isanti Fire Department for 14 years. Many of the children in Isanti have seen Mike in their classrooms teaching them the importance of fire safety.  When Mike is on a call he assists the fireman by making sure that the public is standing away from the scene of the fire. Mike also attends many trainings to stay current on the issues at hand. Self Advocates are people with disabilities who advocate for themselves and others. Mike, thanks for all you do for your community. You inspire others.
