Gazelka's move across district border criticized


I wish to express my strong disapproval in the announcement by Sen. Paul Gazelka (Brainerd Dispatch, Feb. 28) that he is moving his residency from Brainerd/Crow Wing County to East Gull Lake (area) for the sole purpose of seeking the state Senate seat in District 9. The new District 9 is comprised of Morrison, Todd, Wadena and Cass counties.

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.
