To the editor:
Doug not only has a lifelong finance background, but has successfully run his own businesses and held many management roles that include his current position as CFO of Hamline University. As longtime Lakeville business owners and residents ourselves, it is important to us that our city is held to the same fiscally responsible standards that we need to practice to survive. After all, it is all Lakeville property owners that cover the blunders. Doug’s lifelong finance history, education and hands-on experience back up his campaign commitment and assure us of this. He truly possesses the credentials to stand behind his fiscally conservative platform.
Additionally, Doug and Deb have raised both their children in Lakeville, calling Lakeville their home for 29 years. They both continue their parents' legacies of giving back to our community through the numerous civic and service organizations they volunteer in. Seems obvious that what he claims and stands for he has proven by his past performance and thus it makes him the perfect candidate for Lakeville City Council.
Tim and Cindy Murphy, Lakeville
