Dedicated people run the elections

Dear Editor:

Yesterday I was privileged to work with an extremely hard working group of people, those who worked at the election poll in Cambridge for the ISD 911 referendum on bonding.

We began the day 6 a.m. and for some of us it ended at midnight. What I found once again working another election is an extremely dedicated group of people, honest and with a great deal of integrity. The people of our community can be confident that their elections are in good hands.

Diane Wicht and her crew from the District offices were there every step along the way. Lynda Woulfe, Cambridge City Administrator, an expert on how elections run, was there with us until the end. Terry Treichel and Heidi Fowler from the Isanti County Treasurer’s Office were helpful and also experts on how to make an election run. The leadership of Darrell Vosika, also an experienced hand at elections, was indispensable. And the work of the crew that Diane assembled was wonderful.

They are a group highly experienced at running an election by experience: John Anderson, Bob Lex, Kathleen Hagfors, Kim Garber, Betsy Potrament, Darlene Melland, Dolores Points, Janet Greer, Cheryl Anderson, Shirley McVenes, Carol Lex and Joan Videen. Several stayed until midnight to help us find three misplaced votes. Thanks to all of them.
