Commitment to youth and schools

I was pleased to learn that Bruce Anderson is coming out of retirement to once again serve his community in the role of county commissioner. I worked with Bruce as he demonstrated his commitment to youth and the schools of Sherburne County. During his term as sheriff he helped form a partnership between the Elk River Schools, Becker Schools, Big Lake Schools and Central Minnesota Jobs and Training. As a result of Bruce’s involvement and with the Sheriffs department financial contribution we were able to open up Twice as Nice Thrift Store in Zimmerman. This collaboration also resulted in establishing many partnerships through the county for youth that may have been struggling to find employment. Bruce Anderson has made a huge impact on the youth of our communities. I want to say thanks, Bruce, for your zeal and hard work in improving conditions for our area youth. I look forward to your continued involvement as county commissioner. — Timothy Wick, Elk River (Editor’s note: Wick is a work-based learning coordinator for the Elk River Area School District.)
