In my 10 years as a resident of Scott County, I have dedicated myself to the practice of stewardship for the land and its water resources. That is why I became involved as a manager of the Prior Lake-Spring Lake Watershed District.
This fall, Scott County voters will go to the polls to select leaders for a variety of offices. Perhaps none is more important to the voters of Scott County than the office of Scott County attorney. I hope the voters of Scott County will join me in supporting Ron Hocevar for Scott County attorney.
This weekend, I read state Sen. Pratt’s letter defending state Rep. Albright. Based on his legislative performance it's no surprise the GOP thinks Albright needs defending. However, I think he needs a more accurate defense.
I was born and raised in Prior Lake and have continued to reside in Scott County with my husband raising our family. I have watched our county double in size the last two decades with more schools being built, businesses opening and major highways constructed.
I have had the privilege of serving the citizens of Scott County as a commissioner on the county board for 12 years. One of the responsibilities of the county board is to carefully review and pass the budgets of all the various departments in the county, including the county attorney’s. Six of my 12 years as a commissioner were during the period of time that Mr. Terwedo was the county attorney. One thing I noticed was Mr. Terwedo, during his time as county attorney, traveled to many various conferences around the country, including at least one to Hawaii. This was done on the taxpayers’ dollar.
I am writing as someone concerned about the upcoming local election. Working for the sheriff’s office from 1976 to 1998, and the city of Savage for eight years, I have worked with, and witnessed the quality of work of both candidates seeking the position of county attorney.
