Letter: An endorsement for Kelli Wegener

To the Editor:

In the Northwest Herald opinion piece, "Countywide endorsements", qualifactions were listed for Republican candidates and only Repubican candidates were endorsed. 

Quaifications of Democratic candidates were not listed. I know Kelli Wegener, the Democratic candidated for District 3. She is highly qualified. A list of some of her qualifications follows:

Kelli has an MBA in Finance, is a former bank examiner for the Federal Reserve Bank, a project manager for the Board of Trade Clearing Corporation, and is currently a financial administrator. Kelli wants to ensure that our tax dollars are spent wisely. 

She has reviewed the county budget and financial statements and has proposed that County Board member health care be eliminated, saving hundreds of thousands of dollars annually.  

After all, serving on the County Board is a part time job, and I think these benefits are extravagant.

By being fiscally conservative, Kelli would reduce wasteful spending while ensuring that county residents receive services necessary to maintain decent living standards. Kelli is a good listener - she will listen to your concersn and will work for your benefit.  

It's time for a change. Kelli will provide a fresh perspective to the Board. Vote for Kelli Wegener, District 3!
