Let me first introduce myself as Fred Hage, a current resident of Cass County in Woodrow Township and candidate for Director in 1A. I am taking this opportunity to formally announce my candidacy for the Director position of 1A, which will be voted on by mail in July and August. My main focus will be to restore Honesty, Integrity and Transparency (HIT). These factors, along with fiscal responsibility, will be the main thrust of my campaign.
If elected, I know that I would only be one of nine directors, but my presence and voice will surely be heard and acknowledged. It is my desire to ignite a greater atmosphere of accountability within the current board.
If elected, you can be assured that I will give my best effort to improve all areas of the operation that warrant improvements. Debt service and salary/bonus abuse will have high priority in my efforts to increase membership awareness in these areas. I will take every step to promote a fair and equitable situation for Crow Wing Power and its members.
I was born in Mpls, MN in 1949 and educated at Bloomington Lincoln and Shattuck/St Marys in Faribault. After high school, I earned a degree in Bus Adm & Mgmt and a degree in Marketing at Southwest State University in Marshall MN, graduating in June of ‘71.
After 17 productive years in banking, insurance and real estate in southwest Minnesota, I moved to sunny Arizona for 25 years. I was successful in the building industry as a General Contractor (residential & commercial) throughout the metro Phoenix area.
Then, with wife Karen (Iowa born), we moved back to northern Minnesota in 2013 and are living at Woman Lake in beautiful Cass County. We have a son and daughter-in-law in Fargo with two wonderful grandchildren, ages 17 and 19.
