Your View: Rovney deserves re-election to council

Diane Dobitz, Mankato

— I would strongly encourage Mankato residents to vote for Tamara Rovney for Mankato City Council.

Over the years that she has been in office, I have observed a very intelligent and dedicated woman who is very committed to our community in ways that encourage economic growth, prudent use of taxpayer money, and wise spending restraint when faced with declining revenue from the state.

Rovney also spends a lot of time listening to and communicating with her constituents when weighing decisions she needs to make on the City Council. Voting for Rovney will keep a strong advocate for the common good in our decision making body for the city.
