Riebel’s the man for Engstrom

John Riebel is the name of the man from Becker Township I will be voting for District 3 county commissioner on Nov. 6 and I hope you in Elk River Wards 2A and 2B will vote for John as well. Because John Riebel is from the Becker area, the majority of you probably haven’t had the opportunity to meet John, which is unfortunate because he’s a great guy and would represent us well. I know this first-hand, as we served together on the County Board before I retired in 2009; John representing Commissioner District 3 and I representing District 1. John grew up on his family’s farm and graduated from Becker High School. John is an Army vet and past Legion commander, graduate of St. Cloud State, elected multiple times to the Becker Town Board, serves on the Fair Board, owns and operates Becker True Value Hardware. John is a widower with an adult daughter and son. To summarize why you should vote for John Riebel: he is honest, fair minded with common sense, fiscally conservative, home grown, runs his own business and has the experience representing Sherburne County citizens. By the way, he’s got a great sense of humor. Vote with me for someone you will learn to know, like and respect. — Arne Engstrom, Elk River
