LETTER: Supporting DeJournett for Three Rivers Park Commissioner

To the Editor:

My wife Jennifer DeJournett is running for Three Rivers Park Commissioner District 2, which includes the cities of Osseo, Brooklyn Park, Champlin, Dayton and Maple Grove. Our family currently lives in Maple Grove with our four children.

We have always enjoyed the Three Rivers parks in our area, and now with four small children, we appreciate convenient access to high-quality recreational opportunities even more.

Jennifer is a civil/structural engineer, and her previous work has included many projects, large and small. Our park commission is responsible for the construction and maintenance of a significant amount of infrastructure in our park. We look to the commission to make prudent choices with our resources, so that our infrastructure will provide lasting value. Jennifer is accustomed to this expectation, as one of the roles of an engineer is to assist with these types of decisions, and to help maximize benefit for the resources spent.

Fiscal responsibility is an important part of being a mom and engineer. If elected, Jennifer will bring her commonsense, pocket book principles with her to serve the community on the board.

I humbly ask for your vote for Jennifer DeJournett for Three Rivers Park Commissioner on Tuesday, Nov. 6th.

Todd DeJournett

Maple Grove
