Having watched Bob Willmus during his current term, and after working with him on various civic activities over the past couple of years, I am convinced that Bob Willmus should be re-elected to the Roseville City Council.
We attended a meeting hosted by state representative Jason Isaacson at the Roseville Library and came away very impressed with his knowledge and passion for the important work being done at the state Capitol.
I was stunned to see the letter in the September 30 edition of the Roseville Review suggesting I had ignored an invitation to a constituent's event. The writer indicated that he had proposed four possible dates for the event and asked us to inform him of conflicts.
My wife and I hosted an ice cream social for our friends and neighbors to meet legislative candidates Rep. Alice Hausman and Jon Heyer. We proposed four possible dates for the event and asked the candidates to inform us of any conflicts before we sent invitations.
Jon Heyer attended. Unfortunately, Rep. Hausman did not attend, did not tell us that she was unable to do so, and didn't even send any campaign literature.
As an elected representative of Roseville for 20 years, I know how important local elected officials are. I write in support of two candidates for the Roseville City Council, incumbent Tammy McGehee and current school board member Kaying Thao.
As a past member and Chair of Roseville's Parks and Recreation's Advisory Commission, I have had the pleasure of working with Bob Willmus and getting to know him as a person who cares about our community.
