Martin to seek Crow Wing County District 2 commissioner seat


Kurt Martin, 56, of rural Brainerd, announced his candidacy for Crow Wing County District 2 commissioner.

Martin said his mission as a county commissioner would be to reduce county spending to be within the means of the county residents.

Martin said that in 2007 the present county board, with the exception of Commissioner Paul Koering, received a mandate from the voters to reduce county spending from the plus 80 percent increase in the levy imposed by the previous board.
