I am writing in support of Rita Albrecht for mayor of Bemidji. Although I live in Northern Township and am unable to cast a vote in the mayoral race, I see the value to the citizens of Bemidji and surrounding areas of Rita Albrecht as mayor.
Rita knows the challenges of running a small business. She is a longtime resident of Bemidji, and an active volunteer for many area organizations. She has her finger on the pulse of the community, and cares about the people who inhabit it. Rita has earned degrees in Geography/Planning and Education from Bemidji State University. She is poised to lead the Bemidji Community confidently into the future.
For more information about Rita, and the mayoral race, please consider attending the open forum for local primary elections on Aug. 7 at the Bemidji City Hall. A Ward 5 forum will be held from 6:30-7:45 and a mayoral forum will be from 8:00-9:15.
