Jenkins Mayor Recaps November 9 Meeting, Talks Elections

November 12, 2020 News -- KKIN-KFGI-KLKS-WWWI 0

The city of Jenkins held a regular council meeting on Monday, November 9, and we spoke with Mayor Jon Lubke about the things that were discussed as well as how the elections in the city went last week.

Lubke said the meeting was rather short and to the point. The main item that was discussed was their ongoing deliberations regarding a small business development grant application through the Crow Wing County HRA. The council unanimously agreed to pass a resolution to apply to the program, so now it is time to wait and see if Jenkins is chosen.

When asked about the elections last week, Lubke mentioned that the city of Jenkins has run their elections exclusively by mail for a couple of election cycles now. He said he thought all went smoothly this time around.

Lubke was voted to another term as Mayor, securing 69.4% of the vote compared to runner-up Robert Heidelberger’s 30.2%. He said his plans for his next term involve “nothing major” and that the goal is to simply keep raising the bar.

We thank Mayor Lubke for his time. Our full interview with him may be found below.
