Letters to the editor To the Editor: I find it sad that my opponent, Arlyle Danielson, would attempt to mislead voters as she did in a recent letter to the editor in area newspapers.

We will debate a second time from 7 to 9:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 22, at the Hunt Hotel in Montevideo, in an event sponsored by the Montevideo Chamber of Commerce.

My family is important to me, and that's why I will be with them. Throughout my legislative service, I have never forced my family life to take a backseat to politics - and I won't start now.

That's why I encourage voters to read the local newspapers. That's why I am always available to answer calls and letters from the citizens.
