Jon W. Lubke from Jenkins is the best candidate for Crow Wing County Commissioner District 2. As a previous mayor, I collaborated with him to seek solutions on how to offer comprehensive, quality service at a reasonable cost to the citizens we were elected to serve. Since then, I have been fortunate enough to continue this collaborative experience with him in addressing environmental issues facing the Pine Watershed. Regardless of the issue, he consistently exhibits the ability to work productively at any level of government with groups and individuals that vary in age, experience, interest. and educational background. The responsibility that accompanies the role of a county commissioner involves challenging work, experience with the constituency of the area, an understanding of how decisions impact individual citizens, an open mind, and attendance at a multitude of meetings. I wholeheartedly recommend Jon W. Lubke for this position.
