Over the past few weeks, I have had the opportunity to meet many people and have received the support of many of my fellow citizens. Recently, I had the privilege of being asked to participate in a candidate forum with the Building Trades – the labor unions representing the counties of Lake, St. Louis, Cook, Carlton and Pine. After the candidates were interviewed, I was honored to receive the endorsement from the Building Trades.

My association and involvement with groups such as the Two Harbors Development Fund, Two Harbors Economic Development Authority, Two Harbors Chamber of Commerce and my service in the Minnesota House of Representatives has made me a strong candidate for the office of Lake County Commissioner. My education and experience as an attorney representing various businesses, municipalities and individuals has made me a strong advocate. I will bring those strengths to represent and advocate for my fellow residents and Lake County.

I have not and will not make any promises to any special interests groups. The only promise I will make is to be thoroughly prepared to make the best decisions possible for the residents of Lake County.

My wife and I were both born and raised here in Lake County. We are raising our children here. Our family and friends reside here and are raising their families here. I am, and will be, accountable to all of you. My responsibility is to make this the best place to live, work and raise a family. This is what fuels my passion and desire to serve as the county commissioner.

I ask for your support and vote on Jan. 7.

Happy New Year!
