Chris Meyer, elected as the new Winona County Board chair, has had plenty of local government experience to get to this point.
She previously served as a member of the county Parks and Environmental committee, as well as the county planning commission.
During her time on the planning commission is when Meyer decided to take things one step further.
“Jim Pomeroy, the former District One county commissioner, asked me if I’d be interested in running several years prior to my decision,” Meyer said. “I became interested because while people think that state and federal office hold greater importance, I realized that at the local level there is an immediate impact on one’s neighbors.”
