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.

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.
