To the editor:
We all have some important and serious decisions to make this election cycle. Our local elections are just as important as the state and national elections. We are fortunate here in Lakeville because I believe we have clear choices, particularly for the Mayor.
I have read letters criticizing Matt Little for being young, we can not criticize him for his age. But, do we want a student running our city? He does not have any management experience; do we want our city to be his training ground? I have read about his background as Regional Field Coordinator for the National Association of Letter Carriers, the Deputy Director in Ohio at AFL-CIO and the debate Coach in Rosemount High School. Is that the business and life experience required to make tough decisions like perhaps cutting city jobs, if necessary? Is that the right experience for the Mayor of Lakeville?
I can criticize Little for not being straight with the people. When asked about his views on issues in the forum he has chosen, social media, he asks to meet for coffee instead of allowing all the citizens to read his thoughts about his views.
We have a great city that Mayor Bellows has helped cultivate and create the 19th best place to live.
Let’s keep the momentum going. Lakeville deserves BIG Leadership more than a Little leadership.
