Gjesdal: Wendell a wonderful choice

Letter to the editor

Our community was rocked by an unexpected and unwelcome challenge this past year when COVID-19 and the fear around the virus took hold. We needed a sensible and measured leader to guide us through the initial impacts and into recovery, and Brookings found that in Nick Wendell. 

Nick took a data-backed approach to offering solutions that protect our citizens and businesses while doing the least amount of harm to both. I am thankful for his guidance and the city’s mandate requirements to keep both my staff and customers safe at my businesses. 

We are nearing the end of the pandemic (finally!), and I believe Nick will provide the community-minded solutions we need for recovery. Nick is professional, approachable, kind, and the leader Brookings needs. Vote Nick Wendell.
