Today –

It’s been nearly a year since I took the oath of office and became your District 2 Morrison County Commissioner.  It hasn’t always been easy, but no one said it was going to be.  I truly believe I’m working with a Board that gets things done and one that has demonstrated an open form of communication.  We may not always agree on everything (we don’t) and the vote may not be 5-0 or 0-5 (many aren’t) but still we’ve managed to get the job done.

January 2013 Committee assignments were handed out (as they are every January).

The following is a list of Committees and Sub Committees that I’ve been a part of:

  • County Board meetings (Vice Chair)
  • County Board Planning meetings
  • TSWAC (Landfill) 
  • Budget Committee 
  • Planning Commission
  • CHS Board of Health
  • Department Head Committee
  • AMC Delegate (2013 delegate – Health and Human Services
  • Community Corrections (Joint Powers Board)
  • Camp Ripley Citizen Advisory  Committee 
  • Morrison County Ag Society (Fair board)
  • Hands of Hope Board of Directors
  • CAPS Committee 
  • Central MN EMS Regional Board (Joint Powers Board)
  • Morrison County EMS Council
  • Morrison County Extension Committee
  • Law Library 
  • Benefits Committee 
  • Trails Committee
  • Ag Inspection Appeals Board
  • Tobacco Appeals  Board
  • ARMER Representative:
    • RAC (Regional Advisory Committee)
    • Emergency Services Board (Joint Powers) - Vice Chair
    • Central MN Executive Committee – Vice Chair
    • Central MN Owners/Operators – Users Committee
    • Next Gen 9-1-1 (Emergency Communications Funding Study)
    • Morrison County Users Committee
  • Morrison County Fire Chief’s Association
  • HSEM – Homeland Security Emergency Management 
  • ACUB (Army Compatible Use Buffer)
  • Stand Up For U
  • Local Water Plan
  • TZD (Toward Zero Death Coalition)
  • National Night Out
  • Hazard Mitigation 

As a Morrison County Commissioner, the importance of being involved and staying informed is without question second to none. The above list is just a taste of some of the stuff I’ve been involved in and will continue to be involved in.  Keeping communication with you, and engaging the County Board to keep communications flowing, will continue to be one of my priorities.  

As always, if you have a question, or concern please feel free to contact me.  I may not have the answers, but together we will find the answer and get the issue resolved!
