Green files for Brainerd School Board


Kari Green joined four others running for three open seats with the Brainerd School Board, when she filed Thursday afternoon.

The 41-year-old mother of five said that her decision to run was based on wanting to be heard.

“I would have a voice (if elected),” said Green, who currently works as a personal care assistant. “I want to be a part of the decision-making process and be a voice for those that need a voice.”
