2018 Voter's Guide

A voter's guide for the northern Brainerd Lakes Area:

City and School Board races in Nisswa, Pequot Lakes, Pine River, Backus, Manhattan Beach, Crosslake, Fifty Lakes, Jenkins, Lakeshore, Hackensack. Also including State House Dist. 5B, House Dist. 9A, House Dist. 10A, House Dist. 10B, Crow Wing Co. Sheriff and Crow Wing Co. Dist. 2 Comm.

The purpose of the 2018 Voter’s Guide is to share information about area candidates seeking to serve their communities by being elected to city council, school board, county board and legislative seats.

This guide concentrates on candidates in contested races, and includes their answers to three questions in hopes of helping voters decide who to cast votes for at the polls Tuesday, Nov. 6, or via absentee or mail ballot.

The Echo Journal reached out to candidates multiple times via email and telephone to receive as many responses as possible.
