Welcome to my web site!


I created this website in response to governmental waste and abuse in Anoka County.


Many taxpayers donít know that our local governments spend millions of tax dollars every year on things like public relations teams, lobbyists, and junkets to places like Hawaii.


Since there seemed to be no place to turn for the ďother sideĒ of these issues, I created the Anoka County Watchdog.  My intent is to create a one-stop-shop where concerned taxpayers can find fact-supported information and other resources to counter the governmental machine.  Many people want to confront their elected officials regarding waste and abuse but feel they donít have the information they need to make an effective argument.  This web site offers that information.


Some of our elected officials in Anoka County have become arrogant and unresponsive, forgetting that they work for the very people who put them in office.  Itís high time to hold them accountable for their decisions.
