My name is Terry Turnquist and I would like to announce my candidacy for the position of Isanti County Commissioner in NEW District 3. I have had the honor of serving the residents of the Town of Braham and the Townships of Dalbo, Maple Ridge, Springvale, Stanchfield and Wyanett in District 2 for the past eight years.
The new redistricting not only changed my District 2 to District 3, this new district will lose Springvale Township and gain Spencer Brook Township. I want to thank the residents of Springvale Township for their past support and look forward to meeting the residents of Spencer Brook Township.
I have owned and operated a hair salon in Braham since 1985. My wife, Becky, and I have three amazing, married, adult daughters and seven, soon to be eight, grandchildren. My wife and I are truly blessed. I am a member of Braham Evangelical Lutheran Church, Braham Area Chamber of Commerce, Braham Event Center Special Events Committee, Vice President of Braham Area Education Foundation, Second President of Grandy Lions, President of the Tusen Tack Facilities Committee. I volunteer for other organizations such as Appreciation Day, Braham Event Center and Pie Day and am a retired volunteer firefighter from Braham.
I enjoy visiting people and pride myself on being approachable and fair. I use common sense and apply small town values when making decisions. I have previously held government positions such as Braham Town Council for four years, Mayor of Braham for 13 years and am now completing eight years as your county commissioner. I would like to continue as County Commissioner and humbly ask for your support in the upcoming election.
