I am applying for CWP Board seat District 2B. My expressed purpose, as a member of the CWP Accountability Group, is to bring total transparency to the members and return their money through the current litigation by the Minnesota Attorney General and Federal Attorney General.
I am a thirty-year resident of Breezy point and have served the city for approximately 28 consecutive years in every capacity. I served three terms on the planning commission and three terms on city council. I am a presently seated councilor, and former member of the finance committee. I formed the city cemetery development team and chaired the cemetery commission for ten years. I also served five and a half years in the U.S. Navy, during the Vietnam War, in a support position.
I have an education in business and am partner in an estate planning and financial services company. I am a current member of Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Pequot Lakes.
As a board member, I will bring to the board and membership, openness, honesty and integrity. I will not sign any nondisclosure agreements that keep financial information form the members.
