Letter: Hansen will make a great senator

So Steve Pasche doesn’t believe Phil Hansen, because of his football background, is qualified to become a state senator (Forum letter to the editor, Sept. 22).

This nation was founded by citizen legislators, who I believe did a fairly good job. Unlike today’s career politicians, whose only goal is to get re-elected. You ask what a former football player knows about job creation, education and fiscal matters. I ask you, what do career politicians know about job creation, education and fiscal matters? Apparently not enough, all three of these important issues are in trouble.

I believe Hansen will make a great state senator.
