LETTER: Support for Hillen
To the editor:
I am writing to endorse Paul Hillen for State Senate. I have had the privilege to work with and observe Paul over the past 15 years as a youth coach, business professional and a community leader. In each of these roles, I continue to be impressed with how much Paul wants to give while having such deep feelings for all that he does.
The first time I met Paul, he was applying to be the travel baseball coach for the 15 U Plymouth Wayzata baseball team. We conducted our interviews and I came away very impressed. So impressed that the PWYBA board made Paul’s pre-season practice plan the standard for all coaches to follow.
Then Paul was the hockey coach for my son’s youth hockey team. His enthusiasm and commitment to playing the game the right way was contagious. I then had the opportunity to coach youth softball with Paul and he brought the same passion to our daughters’ team that he brings to everything he does.
Paul is the type of man that Plymouth can depend on to represent us. He is extremely organized, passionate about his community and willing to do what is necessary to effect change for our benefit. I can’t think of someone that is more qualified to lead District 42.
