This letter is an endorsement for Janelle Kendall to be re-elected as Stearns County Attorney. Along with this endorsement, I would like to clear up an assumption in the minds of some voters who may be assuming Janelle’s opponent is a member of her own staff. It’s an understandable assumption, but it is untrue. He does not work as an attorney for the County. He is employed by the City of St. Cloud. The two offices are very distinct.
I believe Janelle has demonstrated the management skills necessary to continue the high level of effectiveness we have learned to expect from such an office. Crime-reducing programs which she has initiated now are being praised widely, even to the national level. She is readily available to the people of Stearns County, and deserves to be re-elected. I ask the voters of Stearns County to join me in supporting the re-election of Janelle Kendall.
