Where to start: An Extrovert’s Experience.

I usually post daily based on what I was doing that day or where’s the candidate type deal. So, I will report from a candidate transition. I kept asking Allen R if the numbers were still the same and did they really mean it. Of course, Allen entertains me with something clever… ? and keeps me in my lane.

Moving forward: Grateful!

Howie: you are truly a heart felt blessing to me. I enjoyed laughing & talking and sharing life stories with you. Knowing you better was my blessing… I wish you and your wonderful wife nothing but happiness and love!! -hats off to you.

To the people of the 4th:  You’re the reason I am here! To you I salute. I believe “Leadership is about submission to Duty not elevation to power”( Gordon Tootooses)

To my entire team:

  • from people who came and left the team and ones who stayed on.
  • Abrum, Doug, Alyssa, Allen, Jen, Serina, Abbie and Jackie to start me out and wrap it up)

  • my iron working dad and family who with out them my back bone of steel wouldn’t be.
  • My fellow candidates I am honored to have been with you all, I am a better person because of you all!

I am excited to get to work and help people. I look forward to strengthening this community with your guidance in the 4th, we can do this together!
For the rest of this week I am off from work at Community Action Duluth-vacay. I will go back home to Red Lake and see family and rejuvenate and spend some time being home. I will be back at it when I return!
