I am putting my name in the election at the Annual Meeting for a position on the Board. We purchased our place on Buffalo Lake in 1994 and permanently moved to Packwaukee in 2000. I served on the Buffalo Lake P&R Board for 6 years and served as Treasurer. I feel by being on the Board and living on the lake I can give some history of the lake and what worked and what did not. We have new people getting involved, and that is great and we need those new ideas on how to improve the lake. I am a member of the Golden Sands R, C and D Board and sit on the Water and Lakes Committee, I am the secretary of the Marquette County Lakes Association, and presently on the Marquette County Board and am on the Land & Water Conservation Committee. I feel these connections can be used to the benefit of the Buffalo Lake P&R District.
