Albert Lea Tribune: Letter to the Editor

On March 29 the 1st District Republican Convention, comprising 22 Minnesota counties, was held in Albert Lea. At that time the convention held an election between two candidates with Dr. Brian Davis being endorsed as the 1st District’s candidate for U.S. House of Representatives
Those of us in District 1 have the opportunity this November of electing a remarkable candidate to the U.S. Congress. Davis is a man with high moral standards, a brilliant mind, and a commitment to using these talents for his country in solving our many problems.

Davis is currently a physician of radiation oncology at the Mayo Clinic. After graduating from high school, he attended the University of Illinois and received a degree in nuclear engineering in 1982, then given a one-year scholarship to attend college in West Germany. He was hired by an engineering firm in Chicago working on the design and licensing of nuclear power plants. Davis then attended the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where he received his master’s and Ph.D. degrees in mechanical engineering with biomedical specialization. He later received his medical degree with special training in radiation oncology in New York City.

In these days when energy and health care are huge problems, here is a man who truly has the knowledge and education to contribute realistically to their solution. Davis has laid out his ideas clearly on national security, illegal immigration, energy, health care, spending and taxes. He has expertise in all of these areas.

To those of you who are hungry for a congressman with superior qualifications, knowledge, integrity and leadership, Brian Davis is your man. Just hearing him speak the first time convinced me that he’s the one to elect in the primary against unendorsed candidate Dick Day on Sept. 9 and later in the November election. Davis is truly a remarkable man.

A quote from Brian Davis, “Our next congressman needs to understand America’s energy crisis and have the vision to implement a meaningful change in our nation’s energy problems.”
