A Full Time Mayor


A Full Time Mayor.

With the retirement of Dan Vogt the City has an opportunity to update how management of the City is handled.

I have presented this idea before, that being giving the citizens of Brainerd a voice in who runs our City on a daily basis by means of an election. Currently we have a Mayor’s position which is essentially a public relations position with the City Administrator actually handling the City’s business.

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.
