To the City of Clarkfield, MN
I am extremely honored to have been elected the mayor of Clarkfield. Although I am new to politics, I accept the responsibilities that you have entrusted to me and will strive to make all of us even more proud of Clarkfield. I ask you to give me a chance to make change happen for us. Don't let those who are so fearful of transformation stop the process before it begins by killing ideas with fear and rumors. And I, in turn, am asking all of you to come to the council meetings as often as you can, always reminding your city council that they work for you. By speaking up and speaking out you can get things changed.
To the newly elected members of the City Council, Erin Crosby and Paul Anspach, I say congratulations. I look forward to working with you and the current sitting council members of Clarkfield.
