COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE.>>>EVERY YEAR THE ROSENMEIER CENTER FOR STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT HOSTS THE ROSENMEIER FORUM AT CENTRAL LAKES COLLEGE IN BRAINERD. THE FORUM IS NAMED AFTER GORDON ROSENMEIER WHO WAS A STATE SENATOR FROM LITTLE FALLS AND WANTED TO GIVE CITIZENS A PUBLIC EDUCATION OPPORTUNITY. TOM HANSON WAS THIS YEAR’S FORUM SPEAKER AND DISCUSSED CHALLENGES THAT THE U.S. FACES WITH RAPIDLY CHANGING TECHNOLOGIES. LOCALS THAT ATTENDED THE FORUM WERE ABLE TO ASK QUESTIONS FOR HANSON AFTER THE PRESENTATION. OVERALL THE FORUM WAS A SUCCESS WITH SEVERAL CITIZENS BEING EDUCATED ON DIFFERENT NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL TOPICS, ALL IN THANKS TO THE LATE GORDON ROSENMEIER.>>HE LEFT HIS LEGACY A PERMANENT ENDOWMENT FOR THE ROSENMEIER CENTER FOR STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT, WHICH IS HOUSED HERE AT CENTRAL LAKES COLLEGE, WITH THE EXPRESSED PURPOSE OF EDUCATING OUR AREA CITIZENS.>>ONE OF THE PROBLEMS TODAY IS WE’RE BECOMING KIND OF A SOCIETY WHERE PEOPLE ARE OFF IN THEIR OWN TECH BUBBLES AND KIND OF ON-LINE AND I THINK FORUMS LIKE THIS ARE INCREASINGLY IMPORTANT.
