'Determined' Sand will protect taxpayer dollars

I taught Rob Sand in high school. Not only was he a clever, funny, personable and smart student, he was a person who was determined, even as a young adult. My first recollection of Rob’s determination was when he championed the cause of a skate park in Decorah. He worked tirelessly for several years. His goal became reality.

I coached Rob as a student in speech and drama activities. He was a quick study and a fun person to work with. In addition to talent, he also had brains. He was determined to make a difference and leave his mark on Decorah High School. His goal became reality.

As a lawyer working for the Iowa Attorney General’s Office, Rob pursued criminals who had been scamming the system, especially the lottery, bringing them to justice and saving the state millions of dollars. Once again, his goal became reality.

Now, Rob is running for state auditor. Once again, Rob has pursued this office with diligence, just as he has tackled so many other causes in his life. Rob will figure out ways to make the system work better. He’ll doggedly pursue what is right and fair. He has my vote and I hope he can count on yours. I have no doubt that just as he has achieved so much in the past, his goal will become reality.

Please vote for Rob Sand on Nov. 6. He is a person who will protect our tax dollars and our state.
