Letter: Gardner's bid for secretary of state is not 'stupid' or 'insulting'

The Will Gardner described in Jack Zaleski's April 1st column is not the Will Gardner I personally know and admire. Nor is Will's challenge for the Republican nomination for North Dakota's secretary of state "stupid," "insulting" or "offensive." ...

The Will Gardner described in Jack Zaleski's April 1st column is not the Will Gardner I personally know and admire. Nor is Will's challenge for the Republican nomination for North Dakota's secretary of state "stupid," "insulting" or "offensive." It is simply a good man who saw problems in the office and decided to actually try and do something about it instead of just sitting back and complaining.

Gardner has the technological background, a vision for the future of North Dakota and the personal integrity to be North Dakota's next secretary of state. If I had been undecided about who to support this weekend at the Republican convention, Zaleski's column would have been just what I needed to swing my vote to Will Gardner.

I can't think of a single issue or candidate Zaleski has supported in his column that I could support or endorse. In fact, I had assumed that Jack Zaleski was as solid a Democrat as you could find.
