Letter: Pulkrabek Has Shown 'Strong Leadership' as Commissioner
This resident encourages people to vote for Bill Pulkrabek on Nov. 6.
Bill Pulkrabek has Exhibited Leadership.
Having served as a local elected official, I appreciate strong leadership in local government. Washington County Commissioner Bill Pulkrabek has demonstrated that type of leadership county-wide in two specific ways.
One, Washington County has the lowest county tax rate in the entire metro area. Those on a fixed income or those who are struggling through these difficult economic times take even more of a financial hit when property taxes rise. I’m appreciative that Bill Pulkrabek has made a commitment to homeowners and business owners in Washington County to keep our property taxes the lowest in the metro.
Two, Washington County has partnered with ten other entities to find out the cause(s) of the low water level of White Bear Lake. Not only has Washington County put resources into two insightful studies, looking at what can be done today, but also what needs to be done in the future regarding which municipalities and industries are going to continue to demand more water usage. Finding a solution at the local level is critical and Bill Pulkrabek has once again demonstrated strong leadership.
I encourage Washington County residents to vote for Bill Pulkrabek on November 6th.
— Yale Norwick, former mayor of Mahtomedi
