Nicki Vander Meulen: Cynthia Kaump will support financial literacy as state treasurer

Dear Editor: I am writing to heartily endorse Cynthia Kaump for state treasurer. Cynthia is a hard worker with a keen knowledge of financial matters, which she has demonstrated by working as the former director of communications and community outreach in the state treasurer’s office. To put it mildly, Cynthia has the most financial experience in this race.

As a MMSD School Board member, I take an interest in any and all offices that affect our students. The Treasurer’s Office directly affects the public schools, as our school libraries are funded indirectly through the Treasurer’s Office. Cynthia Kaump will be an excellent steward to protect our school libraries through her job as state treasurer.
