Dan Huls is uniquely qualified to be our county commissioner. Dan’s involvement in our community has been extensive, positive, and well thought out. His accomplishments are well known, so I would like to focus on who he is rather than what he has done.
Throughout the years I have been privileged to know Dan as a dear friend, he never ceases to amaze me. He is a man of impeccable character and integrity. He is honest, yet kind — a rare combination. He avoids speaking poorly of anyone; he listens well and treats others with great respect. Dan has been a tremendous role model to my children as well as to innumerable kids he has coached.
He works harder and complains less than anyone I have ever known. Being a fourth generation dairy farmer has prepared him to handle anything. He knows the county, the people, and the needs of the community. He works long hours every day of the year, is always on call, dealing tirelessly with problems that cannot wait. And he is always there when you need help.
Politics can often turn dirty. Dan has the intelligence, wisdom, and sound judgment to deal with conflict. He reminds me of Abraham Lincoln, who, when challenged about his conciliatory attitude toward the South after the Civil War, stated, “Do I not disarm my enemies when I make them my friends?”
In these times of uncertainty, the selection of Dan for County Commissioner is an easy choice.
