To the Editor:

I write to support Ms. Riddell-Norstrom’s candidacy for the Keizer Fire Board. As a native Keizerite with long family ties to our fire department she has the fire department’s and city’s best interests in mind, not any personal ego or ambition. Ms. Riddell-Norstrom also brings a PhD level patient care perspective to the board. Having known her for over 20 years, I know she is professional, dedicated and diligent, she will not only show up for board meetings but will go the extra mile to make sure Keizer Fire is run efficiently and effectively and to the benefit of Keizer’s residents.
