Lembke a man who takes seriously his obligation to serve the people

This is in response to a letter written by Mr. Tom Organ. Shame on you, Mr. Tom Organ. It is a shame that you would put political ambitions first, not taking the time to get to know the man that you insulted and slandered. It is obvious that you really don’t know him.

Let me set the record straight. Other than his mother, his wife and his children, I believe I know him better than anyone else. The man I know, Jim Lembke, is a good man, a man of character.

The values he holds dear are love for God, love of family and love for his country — just in that order.

He is a man with a servant’s heart. He is an honest man, a man of faith who prays each day for guidance in the decisions he makes. He is a man who is not too proud to clean house, cook dinner for his family and even do the grocery shopping — the people at Dierbergs in Lemay can attest to that.

He is a man who takes seriously his obligation to serve the people of this great state. He has always made himself available to speak to the concerns of those he serves. From the very beginning when he ran for public office, he put his personal cell phone number on all his literature. He truly enjoys hearing from his constituents and is always ready to listen to what they have to say.

Jim Lembke is a softhearted man who I have even seen cry. But in contrast, he is a man who is not afraid to stand up and fight for what he believes is right. He works harder than anyone that I know and serves with honor and dignity. He is not a politician. He is a true statesman. I’m proud to call Jim Lembke my friend.
