Letter: Councilor Cole endorses Bleyenberg for commission seat
Minnehaha County sets the bar for strong leadership when it comes to public safety, economic growth and a people-first focus. But a community like this is no accident- it’s the result of purposeful actions by thoughtful leaders who are willing to put in the work to move our county forward. To keep our communities strong, I’m asking to you vote Jen Bleyenberg for Minnehaha County Commission.
Jen is the kind of leader we deserve on the county commission. She and her husband Verlyn, a police officer for the city of Sioux Falls, have raised their family in Minnehaha County. While raising her family, she made time to serve on the Wall Lake City Township, working hard to improve the lives of people within her community. Now, she is turning her focus to improving all of Minnehaha County. As a mom, I know that raising a family is no simple task—it requires patience, compassion, and focus. These are all qualities that Jen exemplifies, and I look forward to seeing her use them to make Minnehaha County the best it can be.
