Re-Elect Gary Kriesel to Washington County Board by Kris Amundson and Bruce Gritters

Stillwater Current - October 12, 2016


"It has been my pleasure working with Commissioner Kriesel over the years. He cares about our community and works hard to solve the county issues as soon as they arise. He is always accessible and willing to listen to everyone. The residents of Washington County are lucky to have Gary Kriesel​ representing us."

Senator Karin Housley

As Mayor of Stillwater I've had the pleasure of working closely with Commissioner Kriesel over the past few years. As Mayor, I could not be more impressed with how hard Gary works for the St. Croix Valley. He's very involved and a great advocate of the community. As a resident I could not feel more fortunate to have Gary representing us in Washington County.”

Mayor Ted Kozlowski


As the Mayor of Bayport, I have thoroughly enjoyed a strong working relationship with Commissioner Kriesel and the County Board.  When Bayport began pursuing construction of a new Fire Hall, Commissioner Kriesel stepped up and worked with the full Board to offer their support of our process to acquire State owned land at no cost, saving the City over $300,000.  This level of partnership across agencies is exactly the type of thinking that is needed in government, and I applaud Commissioner Kriesel for this. It is my pleasure to offer my full support of Commissioner Gary Kriesel in his reelection efforts.”

Mayor Susan St. Ores


I wholeheartedly endorse Gary Kriesel for County Commissioner. His skilled assistance has been invaluable in obtaining county funding and assistance for Afton’s Old Village road improvements and sanitary sewer project. His strong advocacy for cooperative relationships among cities resolves conflicts and supports joint projects benefitting all District 3 residents."

Mayor Richard Bend


"Gary works harder than any other elected official I know to represent each of the 12 communities he represents."

Brian Zeller

Former Lakeland Mayor

"It will be a pleasure to take this moment to express my full support for your reelection as County Commissioner. I appreciate your fiscal responsibility to our residents along with your attention to the rich resources within our county. I look forward to working together here in Baytown Township."

Board Chairman John T. Hall

Baytown Township
