Letter to the editor: Vote Brekken for county commissioner

Bill Brekken's "listen, learn and lead" approach to serving the residents of District 2, Crow Wing County's lake country, is "on target."

As a leader of the Whitefish lake association, I know Bill's leadership approach that he has demonstrated as a Gull Lake association leader in addition to his other past and present community service. Starting with his values for honesty, integrity and character, Bill has identified important natural resources, water resources, infrastructure and fiscal issues.

These issues are important to all District 2 and county business owners, residential and seasonal property owners, local governments, charitable organizations and visitors. Bill will collaborate and listen for better solutions to these issues as he knows that all of us are wiser than any one of us.

My wife, Jane, and I encourage your vote on or before Nov. 6 for Bill, a knowledgeable, positive voice for District 2.

Tom Watson,

Swanburg (Timothy Township)
