BRAINERD โ€” Jenkins Township resident Robin Sylvester announced she will run to represent District 2 on the Crow Wing County Board.

Sylvester has been married to Ret. Maj. John Sylvester for 32 years and together they have three married children and four grandchildren. Over the years, the Sylvesters have been involved in the hockey, church and military communities throughout Minnesota, according to a news release.

Sylvester grew up in Anoka and since the 1970s, spent weekends and vacations at a lake cabin on Upper Mission Lake and later on Upper Hay Lake. The Sylvesters moved to the area in January 2021.

Positions with the state of Minnesota over the years provided Sylvester with experience in a number of programs a county administers, she stated. This experience includes working for military affairs at Camp Ripley, the Minnesota Department of Human Services in Brainerd, the Minnesota Department of Corrections in St. Cloud and Lino Lakes, Bemidji State University and the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

Important issues for Sylvester include: eliminating illegal drugs and drug distribution, reducing crime, creating neighborhood support systems, protecting children, education that includes American history and the U.S. Constitution, creating an economy that prospers for all and expands small business, living local, providing access to services such as broadband internet, health care, VA medical care for veterans and protecting lakes, waterways and natural resources.


โ€œYour voice matters! โ€˜We The Peopleโ€™ should always be the voice for this community!โ€ Sylvester stated. โ€œI would be honored to work for you!โ€

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
