County Council, Dist. 1: Nehring prioritizes his constituents

I was very pleased to see that Nate Nehring won the County Council, District 1 primary election with what appears to be the largest vote total in the district’s recorded history. I am one of Nate’s many supporters and have followed his campaign closely.

It is clear to me that the council member’s base of support transcends political ideology. His strong work ethic and overall character continues to earn the respect of others, even those who may think differently politically. I would like to see more of this from our leaders; prioritizing constituents over politics.

Nate is one of the few elected leaders who immediately responds to outreach from residents and does everything in his power to bring about solutions to community issues. As long as Nate continues down this road, he will have my support. He should have yours too.
