Letter: Candidate has ability to work with all people

Matt Bliss is running for Beltrami County commissioner. I have known him for 15 years. He has been involved in our community of the Pennington and Lake Kitchi area for these years. He is active in the resort association out here and all of the social issues that go along with this. He owns and runs Camp Pennington on Lake Kitchi and has since 2001. The resort is a social gathering area for our entire community not just paying guests.

Matt currently works for the Red Lake Nation as head of their IT department. Before that he was with Grand Casinos in Hinckley and Onamia for the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe. He has the ability to work with and deal with people of all ethnicities. He’s keenly aware that the county commission position has more effect on people’s lives than any other elected position.

He’s a good listener and considers all opinions and has an easy-going, approachable personality. He is fiscally conservative and believes the county works for its residents. In simple terms, we the citizens are the boss and not the other way around.
