Our family believes Bill Brekken should be the next Crow Wing County commissioner for District 2. Bill cares about people. He has served others through the United Way, Brainerd Lakes Community Foundation, the Center for Lifelong Learning at CLC, Bridges of Hope, Common Goods, the Salvation Army and his church. Bill is a trustworthy friend, a good listener, an open-minded thinker and a guy who is always willing to roll up his sleeves and push a broom.

Our kids love Bill. "He sure is a patient grandpa. He's a hard worker, but he makes the work seem like fun," our 7-year-old son, Charlie, reports. Nora, our 12-year-old daughter, agrees: "Bill is awesome! Whenever we need help, Bill shows us how to find a good solution. Bill loves the woods and the lakes. I'm glad he cares about clean water and wildlife."

We hope you'll vote for Bill Brekken
