Dean Meyer letter: Concerned, but the system worked

Although I did not get The Forum's endorsement, I would still like to take this opportunity to thank you for the interview opportunity. I sincerely appreciated the chance to visit with you about my vision for the future of the office of treasurer.

Although I did not get The Forum's endorsement, I would still like to take this opportunity to thank you for the interview opportunity. I sincerely appreciated the chance to visit with you about my vision for the future of the office of treasurer.

Comments in the editorial about the treasurer's office may leave some of your readers with the false impression that I am unconcerned about the clerical errors in the treasurer's office earlier this year. I am concerned.

But, as I pointed out, the system worked. The mistakes were found and corrected.

No funds were missing. And measures have been implemented to make sure the mistakes do not occur again.

It is difficult, from the outside looking in, to say just what changes will be made. As I stated in our conversation, until one is in the office and observes exactly what is being done at this time, it is silly to make recommendations.

You can rest assured, with my lifetime of business experience, and my 10 years of legislative experience, I will work to make any changes necessary.

I do look forward to working with you, and other citizens of North Dakota, as we try to improve North Dakota.

Again, thank you for the opportunity to respond, and the interview.

Dean Meyer

Democrat-NPL candidate for state treasurer
