Our Opinion: Jobs


In between the various constitutional amendments legislators are planning to introduce and endless talk about Vikings stadium proposals there’s one topic we’d like to hear more about — jobs.

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.
