Chip for Brainerd
Running, and serving, in public office takes special courage and conviction.
And, if the truth be told, it is something few of us would ever choose to
do. We owe our thanks to all those who give their time to make our community
a better place.
It’s particularly gratifying to see someone like Chip Borkenhagen seek
election to the Brainerd City Council. He’s not only dedicated a good part
of his life to our area, he’s cultivated the relationships and knowledge to
truly make a difference.
I’ve known Chip for years in his role as a business owner, a supporter of
the arts, a volunteer, a creative professional, a community advocate. I
sincerely doubt there’s another with the commitment, insights and vision to
positively shape our city’s future. Not only does he understand and
represent the best interests of businesses and residents alike, he does so
by listening, by caring and by innovating through collaboration. Our
community has many strengths, but it also has its challenges and needs leaders like
Chip to bring new ways of thinking and better ways of doing. I urge you to
place your trust and your vote in him Nov 6.
