Rasmussen brings fresh perspective

As a longtime resident of Monroe, I strongly support the candidacy of Jeff Rasmussen for city council. I support Jeff because he is logical, responsible and most important of all, he understands that the city council works for the citizens of Monroe. Not for personal gain or to satisfy a personal agenda.

Over the past few years, I have attended many city council meetings with Jeff. While I have become somewhat frustrated with the way things work in local politics, Jeff has seen an opportunity for improvement. His optimism is commendable. Because of his great attitude and fresh perspective, he is the best candidate to represent the citizens of Monroe.

Enough of the negative politics. Vote for a candidate who cares for the community. Vote for Jeff Rasmussen.
