Dear Linn County Supervisor District 2 Appointment Committee,

I am writing in support of Ron Olson to be appointed to the Board of Supervisors District 2 vacancy. I have had opportunity to work with Ron on the Eastern Iowa United Way Board of Directors as well as when he was chairman of the 2013 United Way campaign and successfully put together a labor/contractor leadership challenge grant for the campaign that year. Ron far exceeded expectations as the chair and helped raise millions of dollars that went back into our communities. I also know of his reputation as a community leader both in his volunteer work and as a successful business person in his role at Paulson Electric Company. His construction experience would add expertise in that area to the Board of Supervisors. I feel that without a doubt Ron is highly qualified to fill this interim Board of Supervisors vacancy and therefore is an excellent candidate for this position. Thank you for your consideration.
