This letter is written in support of Ken Visger, who is running for a seat on the Houston County Board of Commissioners.

Ken, a personal friend for the past 20 years, has the characteristics of someone who will be an effective elected official: He is conscientious, hard-working, energetic, and he has a wonderful sense of humor. Ken is thoughtful and he is a good listener. He is confident, articulate and knowledgeable.

Ken is a passionate supporter of causes that are important to my wife, Bobbi, and me including: Protecting our environment, providing service to people with disabilities and providing help to children and families in crisis.

Ken, a lifelong resident of the area, has lived on 180 acres of farm and forest land between La Crescent and Hokah since 1974. He has been a member of and provided leadership to a wide variety of civic groups including: Rotary, Jaycees, Family Services, ABLE and Friends of the Mississippi Fishery Services. In addition, he has served as a member of the Houston County Board of Adjustment.

Ken will provide fresh new ears and a fresh new voice to the wide variety of issues that face our County Board. I am 100 percent confident that he will advocate for the best interests of all us who are fortunate enough to reside in Houston County.

John D. Haugan, La Crescent

John D. Haugan is treasurer for Visger for Commissioner.
