Reader Opinion: Vote Jon Lubke

Jon is an excellent listener, is a person who has broad knowledge of all levels of government, and is a person who worked effectively with us though we all had different issues in play.

I had the opportunity to work closely with Jon Lubke in bringing high speed broadband to the city of Jenkins, Jenkins Township and Ideal Township. We successfully worked with Crow Wing County and gained broadband for all three of our areas at a cost that was more than reasonable given the cost to add such services to other areas in Minnesota.

Jon is an excellent listener, is a person who has broad knowledge of all levels of government, and is a person who worked effectively with us though we all had different issues in play. I especially liked that Jon was completely focused on serving his constituents balanced with what is best for the broader area we comprise.

As an elected supervisor at Ideal Township, I would personally recommend Jon for Crow Wing County Commissioner for the reasons cited above. Please vote — and vote for Jon.
