Stewart is thoughtful listener

To the editor:

I am writing to support Mary Stewart for State Senator. Mary is deeply knowledgeable in educational and economic development issues from her long career at Indian Hills Community College.

She is a tireless worker who has spent countless hours in the past two years meeting and listening to residents throughout District 41, and she will represent our area well in the Iowa State Senate. She studies complex issues carefully.

Unlike her opponent, she seeks out the opinions of others, listens thoughtfully and learns from these discussions. She works well with groups of people and is very experienced in building coalitions and regional partnerships. These skills will add to her effectiveness as our elected State Senator.

I look forward to voting for Mary Stewart for State Senator on Nov. 6. Every vote counts. I urge you to make your vote count by choosing Mary Stewart.

- Mary Ann Reiter, Ottumwa
