I appreciate Dave Larson as our mayor because he promised to be a good steward of our tax dollars. His voting record affirms that he has kept his promise. He has been consistent to vote against issues that would have used taxpayer dollars on non-essential projects. Dave always weighs the cost/benefit of every issue.
Larson orchestrated significant changes to the Industrial Park criteria which has resulted in a more marketable development. Mayor Larson, an architect by trade, is well connected in our city. He’s a member of the Joint Planning Board, BEDA President on the Joint Powers Law Enforcement Committee, a member of the Old Fairgrounds Land Re-use Committee, planning board member for the Jaycees Water Carnival, Downtown Development Authority member and a member of the Chamber of Commerce’s Grow Minnesota committee.
Mayor Larson is always available to listen to concerns and opinions. He holds a meet the mayor gathering on a monthly basis, one Saturday morning each month as promised. Dave is a breath of fresh air, he’s genuine and very easy to talk to. His commitment on every issue is to enhance the safety, health and well being of all of our citizens.
Dave Larson and his wife Ilona are people of integrity. He has vowed that his political career begins and stays with our city, he has no other agenda other than to serve Bemidji as our mayor. Larson’s commitment is to “Do justly, love mercy and walk humbly,” and for that I have great respect.
