Scott Goddard is running for Crow Wing County Sheriff. He is the best choice for this position as he is a strong, independent leader who has risen through the ranks of the department to his current position as captain. During his career he has supervised most of the divisions and been responsible for training, hiring and budgeting to ensure that our county is equipped with the best personnel and equipment to protect our citizens and visitors. Scott understands the sacrifice it takes to be a law officer.
I know Pat Pickar and believe that he is an excellent candidate for the position of Crow Wing County Sheriff. My experience with law enforcement includes local, county and federal agencies for over 35 years. Based upon this background I have been involved with multiple administrations for comparisons. Listen to what this candidate has to say, watch his work ethic and observe the clean campaign that he has run. Pickar is a stand up guy who will provide leadership for the troops, as well as representing the citizens well.
For the past 15 years I have had the pleasure of working and training with Pat Pickar. Pat is a proud Brainerd Warrior which I quickly learned after meeting him and I can confidently say he genuinely cares about the county he serves. Pat is dedicated to serving our community and brings an unmatched work ethic to the sheriff's office.
I have seen several ads talking about how effective Amy Klobuchar is but you don't hear much about how horrible she is to work for. According to a LegiStorm study and reported by Politico she scored the worst for Senators to work for based on her high turnover in her office. It comes as no surprise after the despicable behavior she showed during the confirmation process. For someone who says on TV there is nothing wrong with drinking beer at 6 a.m. she sure wanted to attack someone else for claims of drinking.
Capt. Scott Goddard has my complete support as the next sheriff of Crow Wing County. I have been impressed with his leadership, knowledge and vision for the safety of Crow Wing County. Scott has been instrumental in working with communities and schools to bring updated active shooter training for law enforcement and school staff members. His connections with local communities and ability to effectively communicate have brought school and community leaders together to enhance our protocols that keep the public safe.
I have had the opportunity to interact with Pat Pickar on many levels. I have had many conversations with on values, hopes, visions, and dreams.
Politics seems to have gotten nastier than ever. Disagreements become personal, our leaders engage in behavior most of us would not tolerate from our children. In my experience with Joe Radinovich he has always been a decent, caring person who is willing to make a stand, even when it is not politically easy. He is the kind of person I would like to see representing this area. Ed Shaw Brainerd
Vote for Sarah Speer for Brainerd School Board! She will represent everyone well. As a parent with children in the district, she knows our struggles and our strengths. Her creativity, leadership, and passion for education will make her an excellent school board member. Be a voter! Martha Rustad Brainerd
In the near future we will be voting for the leaders of Minnesota. I will be looking for new blood to take the place of worthless people. Why? Because I want this state to be strong and stand on the principles that have made this country what it is. If there are bad Republicans, I will vote in new Republicans. If there are bad Democrats I will vote in a person who has the best interest of this state in mind, whether it be a Democrat or a Republican.
