To the editor:
I have known Jeff Bertram on a professional basis for over 5 years. I have worked with many different people in both regulatory and service-related industries. I have never been treated more professionally and with more integrity than I have in working with Jeff Bertram.
I also have seen the work Mr. Bertram has done locally and regionally on various boards. While we don’t always agree, I know of no one who has been more professional or reliable than Bertram.
Jeff isn’t afraid to challenge the “popular” decisions and always has the people he serves in his best interest. If you’re looking for someone who will work tirelessly for what’s best in this district, look no further than Jeff Bertram.
I admire him as rooted in Stearns County where he grew up on his parents’ farm; I respect him as a parent knowing he understands the challenges all parents face; I endorse him as the person to represent this district because I’ve seen the passion he has to serve — and Jeff Bertram has years of experience in serving. For all the people of this district, it’d be bringing back someone you never wanted to see leave because he knows what it means to serve the people.
