Commissioner Bromenschenkel Meeting with Citizens

Submitted Article


Stearns County residents are invited to Coffee with Stearns County Commissioner Bromenschenkel on November 2, 2013 in Waite Park.  These meetings provide an opportunity for citizens to sit down and visit with Commissioner Bromenschenkel in a casual atmosphere, raise any concerns they may have or talk about county issues. Commissioner Bromenschenkel is looking for input on the 2014 budget and levy, which the Board is in the process of developing and will be approving in December.

                        The citizen meeting will be held Saturday, November 2, 2013 from 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 noon at Café Renaissance, which is located at 2140 Frontage Road North in Waite Park.  Citizens are encouraged to stop in anytime during the hour at a time that’s convenient for them.

                        “These coffee meetings have been extremely beneficial for me to better serve the residents of District 2,” said Commissioner Bromenschenkel.  “It allows me to hear directly from citizens the issues that matter to them, as not everyone is comfortable bringing those issues before the entire Board of Commissioners.  It’s imperative they know that I’m available to listen to their concerns and that they know they’re being heard.”

                        Anyone who isn’t able to meet with Commissioner Bromenschenkel on November 2nd can contact him anytime at P.O. Box 190, Sartell, MN  56377, by phone at 320.493.9180 or by email at

                        Coffee with Commissioner Bromenschenkel is generally held the first Saturday of every other month and alternates between three locations in District 2 – St. Joseph, Waite Park and Sartell.

                        Commissioner Bromenschenkel represents the Cities of St. Joseph, Sartell and Waite Park and the Townships of Le Sauk, St. Joseph and St. Wendel.
