Election 2012

Even though many experts say the problems facing government are tougher than ever, they haven’t discouraged candidates in the Brainerd lakes area from offering their services to the voters.

In Brainerd alone, 18 candidates filed for three positions on the city council. Ten candidates through their respective hats in the ring for three Brainerd School Board seats.

The Brainerd Dispatch voter’s guide is designed to at least introduce readers to the candidates. Attendance at candidate forums, research and personal encounters will also help many voters make their decisions on Nov. 6.

The Dispatch only included contested races in the voter’s guide. In some races the Dispatch did not receive a response to the questionnaire it sent out to candidates.

I've worked at the Brainerd Dispatch with various duties since Dec. 7, 1983. Starting off as an Ad Designer and currently Director of Audience Development. The Dispatch has been an interesting and challenging place to work. I'm fortunate to have made many friends, both co-workers and customers.
