I first met Jon in 2017 as the newly elected mayor of Crosslake. At the time Jon was mayor of Jenkins and he's now finishing his 15th year. The qualities that set Jon apart:

  • Integrity — Jon’s running for you, not for a political party, not for his own gain, not for fame. He's a true servant of the people!
  • Perspective — Jon’s involvement in organizations make a difference to people, from Habitat for Humanity to Region 5 Development Commission to the Pine River Watershed. 
  • Leadership — The greatest asset that Jon will bring to Crow Wing County is Leadership. He goes into this new position with confidence, capability and courage.

I believe Jon is the best candidate to represent District 2 as our county commissioner.
A vote for Jon Lubke is a vote for proven leadership and thoughtful decisions that are necessary for Crow Wing County.
