An Open Letter to the Citizens of Anoka County

Dear friends and neighbors,

Thank you for believing in me.  I love Anoka County.  During two terms as a Coon Rapids City Councilmember and as a current member of the Anoka County Joint Law Enforcement Council, I have always enjoyed your support in making our community in Anoka County a better and safer place.

I am now running to be the next Anoka County Attorney. 

The County Attorney is the chief prosecutor for all felony and juvenile crime in the county, as well as the lead attorney responsible for advising the County Board and all the County Departments.

An Anoka County native and a graduate of Anoka Senior High School, I know Anoka County as well as anyone.  With well over 24 years in practice as an accomplished felony prosecutor, child protection lawyer, and trial lawyer, I have the skills and broad experience to excel as County Attorney.  With a lifetime of experience and long dedication to public service, I have significant relationships throughout the region that can benefit Anoka County.

I have a proven track record of using my experience to improve the delivery of services to Anoka County residents.  I have studied under some of the best prosecutors in Minnesota, including among others my grandfather, Robert W. Johnson, and my father, Robert M.A. Johnson.  I know how to protect our neighborhoods and to improve the administration of justice in the county.  And I will make sure that our local law enforcement has the advice, training, and support it needs to succeed.  With the right vision and leadership, Anoka County can be a model for other counties to follow.

Please join me and support our effort.  We all do better when we all work together.  And together we can assure that Anoka County will be a great home where families, individuals, and businesses can thrive.
