Voters urged to pick Anderson

I have known Bruce Anderson since 1975 when I was a police officer in Big Lake and later in Elk River. I worked closely with Bruce as our careers progressed. I knew him to be a tireless, thorough and dedicated investigator and supervisor. I witnessed his leadership abilities as he directed several high profile criminal investigations I was involved with. Bruce had my support in his successful bid for sheriff. Bruce became sheriff at a critical time for Sherburne County, as it was growing rapidly and seeing tremendous change. Through his abilities to network, prioritize, organize, implement and administrate, he built a department that met the challenges. Bruce is an innovative leader. He is not afraid to “think outside of the box” in finding solutions. He is a visionary leader who has demonstrated the ability to see all sides of an issue, consider various solutions and recognize opportunities, while remaining focused on the objectives. I am confident that, as a county commissioner, Bruce will again serve the citizens of Sherburne County with integrity, honesty, determination, fiscal responsibility and vision toward the future. I strongly urge you to join me in supporting Bruce for District 1 Sherburne County commissioner. — Tom Tyler,  Elk River (Tyler is a retired investigative sergeant, Elk River Police Department.)
