Strand to seek another term

Strand represents Meeker Fourth District

Wally Strand will seek re-election this fall as a Meeker County Commissioner.

Strand, who represents Meeker County's Fourth District, made the announcement last week. Strand lives in Kingston Township and has been a Meeker County Commissioner for the last three plus years.

In a news release, Strand, a graduate of St. Cloud State University, said his experience in business, farming, and former township and government offices has been a great asset to Meeker County. Strand was very instrumental in Meeker County receiving a $502,000 grant for infrastructure of the ARMER Radio System.

"I look forward to serving the people of the Fourth District throughout the next four years, and will continue to work hard to meet their needs," Strand said.

The district includes the cities of Watkins, Eden Valley and Kingston, and the townships of Forest City, Forest Prairie, Kingston, and Manannah.
