Why are you running for office? I feel that I would bring good insight into the decision making for the city of Goodhue. I would be a new pair of eyes and ears for our community to voice their concerns. I love talking to the people within our community and getting feedback on how we can improve our community.


What are the three most important issues to you as a candidate? Team player, budgets and integrity.

Michael Brunkhorst (incumbent)

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
