Kron, Sweeney deserve support for County Board
I am writing to express my support of St. Louis County commissioners Peg Sweeney and Bill Kron.
As a resident of Peg Sweeney's district, I know she has represented her constituents with dignity and perseverance. We do not agree on all issues, but I know I can count on Peg to have an open door and to be willing to explore ways to find common ground. She always returns phone calls, always votes as she says she will and is available to townships in her district when that is required. Peg can hold her own in a room full of folks with hot tempers, and she's passionate about issues -- not an easy task. She's been solid in her support of openness in government and careful with county budgets.
Kron is a strong, mature leader on the County Board. He knows so very much about the county and how it works with the state and federal government. He knows the people of his district and all the folks in office. Bill has worked for the kinds of things we all want, including lower taxes, more jobs and better government. He's done his job in an honest, decent way of which we can all be proud. He's got good solid judgment.
Bill was handed tough duty these past years and is still on good terms with all, despite having pushed for tougher regulations on board member behavior.
Both Bill and Peg have worked for a better county for us all and deserve to be re-elected. We need them in these times of such great challenges for government and residents alike. We need these good, decent folks who know the ropes and can keep our county ship on a good course.
