To the editor:

I am excited to recommend Jan Callison for reelection as Hennepin County

I have known Jan for over 10 years—personally (our daughters played fast-pitch softball at Minnetonka High School), in her capacity as city council member and Mayor of Minnetonka and as our Hennepin County Commissioner.

Her energy, caring and problem-solving focus is extraordinary. What you see is what you get—nothing less. In this day of "talk is cheap," Jan is a breath of fresh air. She is, I believe, what most folks want and need in politics. Jan has been, and will be, the right person to represent all of us at the County.

Why am I so enthusiastic?  

As Mayor of Excelsior, I have experienced Jan's leadership qualities. Her handling of the sensitive Excelsior Library project was exemplary—from recommending a redesign process to managing the task force meetings. Ultimately results are what matter, and the result of her leadership is a phenomenal community asset that will span generations.

I have also witnessed Jan in action in other venues, and she is insightful, direct, honest and caring. She is the kind of person I enjoy supporting.

I ask you to join me in reelecting Jan as our Hennepin County Commissioner.

Nick Ruehl
