Editor's note: The following letter was submitted by Mary Jo McGuire, who won election earlier this month as District 2 commissioner to the Ramsey County Board. District 2 includes Roseville:
Thank you so much to the voters in District 2 for electing me as your next Ramsey County Commissioner. I really appreciate and value your support. I look forward to continuing the tradition of dedication and leadership that Commissioner Jan Parker demonstrated during her years of service.
During the course of the campaign, I spoke with many residents in our district and heard about the issues that are important to you. I look forward to working with you and alongside my colleagues on the County Board, to advocate for strong families, safe communities, a healthy environment and continue the work of moving our communities - and our entire County - forward.
Over the next few weeks, I will begin the transition into this new role and will officially take office in January. Please don’t hesitate to contact me, I welcome the opportunity to talk with you.
Again, thank you very much!
Mary Jo McGuire
