Backer is truly 'one of us'

The Mayor of Browns Valley is seeking to serve western Minnesota as our next state senator. His name is Jeff Backer and he has been a volunteer ambulance emergency medical technician for 16 years, president of his local Lions Club, active member in his church and successful small business owner. As a lifelong Minnesota resident, Jeff is truly one of us.

Perhaps you've already seen the large group of "Backer backers" in blue at a parade or community celebration or maybe Jeff has knocked on your door during his door-to-door visits. However, if you haven't met him or simply want to learn more about him and his stance on various issues, I encourage you to take a look at his website, Call him or e-mail him if you want to know more. Jeff is open and accessible and he appreciates your input.

Get to know Jeff Backer and I think you'll agree with me that he has the right priorities in mind for Minnesota's future. --Janine Hanson, Moorhead
