It is not unusual for people to ask me about the best candidates in a local election and this year is no exception. I thought I could save some people the call by writing this letter. My choice for Mayor is Nora Slawik. A lesson I learned early on is the importance of Maplewood’s relationship with the State and County. Nora’s legislative experience and friendships puts her head and shoulders above anyone else in representing Maplewood.
We have a unique opportunity to bring back citizen engagement to Maplewood. By supporting Diana Longrie for Mayor and Rebecca Cave and Margaret Behrens for City Council on November 5, citizens will be able to approach their government.
Last week the Review featured an article about the Maplewood City election. Each candidate was asked to answer questions and to say what she feels qualifies her for this elected office.
Diana Longrie stated that she had been “voted one of Maplewood’s most notable women by the Maplewood Historical Society.”
I encourage Roseville citizens to re-elect Kitty Gogins to the school board. My husband and I have been active in our children’s schools for many years and have come to know Kitty well. We run into Kitty at many events, and always find her interested in our and others’ thoughts on what is happening in our schools.
When looking to select school board members it is important to choose individuals who are not only leaders, but who are collaborative in their approach to leadership. Mark Traynor possesses those qualities and I encourage voters to support Mark for the Roseville Area School Board.
