Sinner knows what North Dakotans want and need

I know many of you disdain politics. I don’t. I grew with family members who felt public service was a noble and necessary duty, whether it was a person who dedicated time to serve on a school board, county commission, city council, rural fire department or a state or national office.

A person who puts his or her name out at a convention or annual meeting and is willing to be placed on a ballot demonstrates the courage and conviction I think is necessary to serve a community or state.

I was proud last spring to be able to second the nomination of George Sinner, Democratic candidate for U.S. House of Representatives. Sinner has been out in the real world, working in private business his entire life. He can see that the gridlock which delayed the farm bill and highway funding bill, and countless other necessary programs are out of touch with what people want and need.

As former Sen. Kent Conrad, D-N.D., said in his nominating speech for Sinner, “Our current Congressman has been kidnapped by the right wing of the right wing!”

We don’t need that. And we do not need an extremist from the left wing. We need a congressman who knows North Dakota’s people and businesses. We need a congressman who has a lifetime of experience working with us, not against us.

I urge you to research these candidates, and support Sinner. You won’t be disappointed!
