Vox Pop-July 10

No auto-reply

What is going on? I emailed the mayor of Brainerd about a month ago and I didn’t even get an auto-reply. Mayor Walden, do your job. The least you could have sent was a “Thanks for your email. I will review your request.” Is that too hard? Do your job or watch people vote you out. You are supposed to serve us as the people that voted for you.

Editor’s note: Perhaps there was no response because Brainerd’s mayor is James Wallin, not James Walden.

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.
