Beth Pfingsten

Name: Beth Pfingsten.

Qualifications: I have a bachelor's of science degree from St. Cloud State University and spent 34 years doing crisis social work for Crow Wing County. I'm a graduate of the Blandin Leadership Program, am a proven leader and have volunteered my service to various boards and commissions the past 35 years.

What do you want to accomplish if elected?: I would continue to work on ways to decrease costs while providing excellent service. We need to ensure that our citizens have good roads, a strong public safety system and have appropriate safety nets in place, along with preserving our beautiful natural resources. Setting policies and giving direction to departments to carry out these actions, along with providing them necessary assets to be successful, should be the board's mission.

Specifically, how would you accomplish your goals?: I would bring fresh eyes and vision to the Crow Wing County Board with my extensive knowledge of our county government, having worked for and with many of the departments. I view this opportunity as one of service, not a job. The citizens of District 4 deserve a strong voice on the board. My skill set of listening, problem solving, communicating and strong leadership will be evident in my role as a policy maker as I advocate for them. Our citizens work hard for their money and I would be fiscally prudent while ensuring excellent service.
