Letter to the editor: Support Brekken for county commissioner

Bill Brekken has a long and rich career, including impactful chapters in retail, finance, higher education, community development (as leader of the Brainerd Community Foundation) and real estate.

These diverse experiences have helped shape Bill into the practical, solutions-oriented leader who is eager to serve Crow Wing County as a candidate for county commissioner (District 2). Bill is the embodiment of the humble servant leader; always curious, eager to learn from all he meets, and ready to apply those lessons - whether they apply to self-improvement or ways we can improve our communities.

He is a fiscal conservative, but also ready to invest when needed to provide quality and timely public services, and in protecting the institutions and natural assets that make the lakes area such a desirable area to live, raise a family, grow a business, recreate, volunteer or retire. Please vote for Bill Brekken on Nov. 6.

Don Hickman,
