This letter is paid content. I’m Mike Wilson and I’m a candidate for the Mayor of Red Wing. I have lived in Red Wing my entire life, raised a family and operated a successful business for over 40 years. I have a passion for this City and an appreciation for the special place it is to the citizens who reside here. Now is the right time for me to give back to the community that has been so good to me and my family. I am ready for this new challenge!
My experience as a past member of the Planning Commission and a former member of the Port Authority along with my business experience will contribute to my ability in making sound decisions for Red Wing. I am committed to working with the City Council and staff. It is important to ask challenging questions and to listen to everyone’s ideas and contributions. Collectively our job as Red Wing’s representatives is to find the best solutions together for the good of our community.
I am committed to sound financial planning and transparency in the use of our tax dollars. Ensuring to solve our housing issues is a must. Retaining the businesses that we have in Red Wing and encouraging new business growth in our city should be on everyone’s radar. It is imperative that we continue our strides towards a cleaner environment as well as the health and safety of every citizen.
Rolling up our sleeves and giving back to our community by supporting each other and working together through these difficult times will make us stronger. I am optimistic that no challenge is too great for our hometown and I am ready for the job!
I ask for your confidence in me and your vote on Nov. 3
Make your voice heard! Make your vote count! Make a difference!
