To the editor:


There are four candidates for the two open seats on the Story County Board of Supervisors. I am going to vote for Linda Murken for one of those seats. Here are just three of the many reasons why you should do so, too.


1. Experience – I have been both a prosecutor and a defense attorney, and I am very familiar with Linda’s experience as the director of the Department of Correctional Services for Story County (and the entire Second Judicial District). She knows how to budget, how to supervise people, and how to work cooperatively towards solutions to problems.


2. Logic – Linda seeks information, data, and facts. She makes rational decisions, even if emotions get heated.


3. Heart – Linda has a generous heart, a pleasant yet professional disposition, and a kind spirit.


Linda will be fantastic in this position, and it would be our mistake not to elect her so she can continue her lifetime of public service.
