I want to thank everyone who took time to visit with the Speaker of the House, Margaret Anderson Kelliher and me during a two-day tour of Park Rapids, Bagley and the region last week. Your input showcased not only the challenges facing our communities, but also the reasons Northern Minnesota is such a great place to live, work and raise a family.

During our visits with county commissioners and officials, school employees and administrators, City officials and business leaders, Itasca State Park staff, Park Rapids area arts groups, and citizens throughout the area, we heard about the issues most important to you. We saw firsthand the great work being done in our schools, and on behalf of our senior citizens, families, the housing issue and the local economy. We also got useful information about the best ways state government can support essential services while maximizing the efficiency of taxpayer dollars.

Thanks again to everyone who took time to share their thoughts and ideas. Many of you worked hard on very short notice to prepare presentations on key issues of importance for Park Rapids and the surrounding area. Your participation reflects your dedication to our community, and your commitment to preserve our great quality of life for years to come.

Brita Sailer

State Rep. Dist. 2B
