What do you consider strong qualifications? I see she is an appointee to Natural Resources Board…that right there is a qualifier. A hunter and user of outdoor resources like snowmobile trails. Seems like someone who has outdoor experience and not just a suit with a degree. Hmmm, a former State Senator…sounds like someone who knows the inner workings of commitees and hearings working on regulations. A critic of the DNR? Ask anyone who hunts, fishes, bikes, skis, smowmobiles, camps or hikes or owns wooded property or a farm. They are all critics of the DNR.
