Your View: Clark Johnson is the right choice

Bill Wagner, North Mankato

— Clark Johnson will work for all of us, he will work for Minnesota.

What a pleasure it was to hear Clark Johnson at the endorsing convention speak with passion about taking care of all the people of our communities by supporting what has made Minnesota great.

A spender Clark Johnson is not (he still carries his lunch to work) but a man of service he is.

 Clark Johnson knows the history of the Minnesota Miracle and the important part first-rate education played in making Minnesota first in its class.

With Clark Johnson we get what we see, no gimmicks, no deception. We get sound arguments from an open mind about what will make things better for all the people.

Do yourself and your fellow citizens a favor and support Clark Johnson as our representative.

To be honest, when I was listening to Clark Johnson’s speech, I heard a bit of Paul Wellstone in his tone and in his passion for making Minnesota Minnesota again.
