To the Editor:
I am writing to endorse Margaret Rog for St. Louis Park City Council in Ward 1.
I can easily say that I have never been more certain of a candidate’s ability to serve the best interests of our community than I am of Margaret’s.
Margaret has been a fixture of the community and of our Birchwood Neighborhood since we moved in over 20 years ago. I have seen Margaret and her influence and hard work everywhere – next door with her kids at Sunshine Park, welcoming parents to Peter Hobart Elementary School at Kindergarten Information Night as president of the PTO, being an election judge at the polling place, organizing the Birchwood 5K Run and neighborhood events, dancing to the band at Parktacular, gaining a grant application for Bookmark in the Park, raising funds and coordinating parents for the St. Louis Park High School Band and Theater Boosters, gathering donations for the Senior All Night Party, supporting Friends of the Arts. Truly, her dedication to the community has been deep and widespread. She is a gatherer of people.
Margaret is the kind of person who shows up and takes action without hesitation or self-aggrandizement. Margaret Rog is the real deal. We would be lucky to have her voice on the St. Louis Park City Council.
