I have known Jack Considine for many years. He really does support small business in and around the Mankato area — from the Farmers’ Market to auto repair.
He and his family are dedicated to the educational system from which so many of us have benefited. During his 16 years of service as a member of the Mankato City Council, Considine acquired extensive knowledge about the inner workings of government.
He understands policies and procedures. In addition, Considine recently retired after working 21 years as counselor to jail inmates during which time he gained tremendous experience in law enforcement. He has been active in numerous community services, some of which have been listed in previous postings.
I believe that Considine’s commitment to small business and education combined with his experience in government, community service, and law enforcement make him an excellent candidate for the Minnesota House of Representatives seat being vacated by Kathy Brynaert.
