Letter: Speedskater attests to Bloomberg's hard work

Speedskater attests to Bloomberg's hard work

To the editor:

As an Olympic athlete, I commit myself to training every day, whether I have a rough night's sleep or a sore back, there is always work to be done, no excuses. I took a break today to write this letter in support of Mike Bloomberg, a Democratic candidate for state representative, because wherever he is right now, he is without a doubt busting his butt for your community.

Mike will be the first person to tell you he's not an athlete (sorry, Mike), but don't let him tell you he doesn't work as hard as one. He is always striving to make himself, and everyone around him, better at what they do. That's leadership. That's dedication. I don't know much about politics at the Statehouse, but I would imagine those are great qualities to have in a representative.

If you vote for Mike Bloomberg on Sept. 8 and again in November, I guarantee you that you will have the hardest working state representative in Boston.

Brian Hansen, South Salt Lake City, Utah Brian Hansen is a two-time Olympic speedskater who won a silver medal at the 2010 Winter Olympics. Hansen met Bloomberg at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs where he was rehabbing an injury and Bloomberg was serving as an intern with the U.S. Olympic Committee. Hansen is training for the 2018 Winter Games.
