I attended the candidates' forum on July 17 for the upcoming elections of Nobles County commissioners. I was impressed by the number of capable individuals running for these seats.

Considering that there will be a new county administrator/coordinator, I believe it would be a serious mistake to not re-elect our three incumbents (Marv Zylstra, David Benson and Robert Demuth Jr.). They were impressive to listen to a the forum, showing an in-depth knowledge of issues confronting the county.

I would hate to see us lose these most experienced people who have given time and effort to all the complex matters that the board has been confronted with. Preserving some continuity seems imperative for the well-being of Nobles County.
