LETTER: Meskers is an intelligent, common sense, no-nonsense, fiscally responsible legislator.

Submitted by Sherry Wernicke, Riverside

I have known Monica and Steve Meskers for over 20 years. Steve has always been a great friend so it came as no surprise that he turned out to be an amazing State Representative for District 150. He hasdemonstrated the same qualities as a legislator as a friend. What stands out most is his caring, always there for you, can do, get things done attitude, and who’s judgment you can trust.

Steve supports issues that are very important to me, such as the environment, gun safety, rebuilding our inner cities and infrastructure, and supporting local businesses.

I can always let him know when there is an issue that concerns me and Steve gets back to me quickly. He addresses my concerns and tells me what can be done. It’s a comfort to know he is only a phone call or email away!

His leadership dealing with COVID focused on the medical experts and not politics, which helped our state make such great strides. Now, more than ever, we need Steve’s background in finance to help our economy rebuild from the effects of this pandemic. Steve is an intelligent, common sense, no-nonsense, fiscally responsible legislator who will continue to ensure our tax dollars are spent efficiently and effectively.

When Steve says it is a privilege and an honor to serve you, it is not rhetoric. He believes this to his core. As Steve says, the company you keep defines you and I am proud to support my friend. Please join me in voting for Steve Meskers for State Representative District 150.
