Pleasantly surprised that Bunn seeks office

I was surprised, in a good way, to learn that Julie Bunn is running for State Senate. In the past, Julie has served our community in many ways – from working on the Lake Elmo Planning Commission to distinguished service in the Rotary Club, and of course, as a state representative for two terms.

Julie’s work as an advocate for small business is noteworthy. A founding member of the bi-partisan Small Business Caucus, Julie worked on legislation to help small businesses prosper and hire new workers. She was the recipient of the National Federation of Independent Businesses Guardian of Small Business Award in 2008 and 2010.

We’re fortunate to have Julie on the ticket in November. Few choices in life are as clear and simple as voting for a proven leader like Julie Bunn.
