Letter to the editor: Elect Menk in House District 10A

Dale Menk, the DFL-endorsed candidate for Minnesota House District 10A, will challenge for the House seat currently held by Rep. Josh Heintzeman, R-Nisswa.

Menk is a Pine River-Backus High School graduate and a strong supporter of the Constitution's Amendment II: Right to bear arms.

He's a lifelong lakes area resident, a carpenter at a locally owned building construction company and a dedicated father.

He understands our way of life and will always put the needs of the people first.

He lives in Brainerd with his wife, Trisha. His children attend public schools.

As a representative, he will work to form relationships with his fellow legislators, to find common ground and build from there.

Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 6. Vote for Dale Menk, DFL, House District 10A.
