Letter to the editor: Vote Brekken in CWC District 2

Crow Wing County District 2 residents have an important choice to make regarding the direction of our county, and they should vote for Bill Brekken. The current commissioner, Paul Thiede, has shown that he is more interested in pursuing his personal and partisan agenda than in doing what is right for this county.

Many times I have been disappointed to read about comments he has made in his official capacity, including this past year when he lectured a local nonprofit leader with inaccurate information that fit his personal agenda.

In contrast, Bill Brekken is a great listener, a positive thinker and respectful of others. Bill will listen to those who appear before him instead of lecturing them with personal opinions.

Please vote for Bill Brekken, who will do what's best for the county and help it move forward in a positive way.

Paul Jacobsen,
