MWA would like to thank DNR Commissioner Tom Landwehr for his 8 years of service in this important position in Minnesota. Tom has always been supportive of everything that MWA has done over the years and that continued as he served as DNR Commissioner. Tom is a member of MWA and members would see Tom at MWA banquets around the state and annually at our annual Waterfowl Symposiums and awards banquet.
Today, Governor Elect Walz has announced that the new DNR Commissioner will be Sarah Strommen. Sarah is an MWA member and has attended our Rum River banquet with her family for years. So we know Sarah as well, and have high regard for her work ethic and leadership and look forward to working together in the coming years. Most recently Sarah was an Assistant Commissioner in the DNR, so we believe this will be an easy transition.
We wish Sarah luck and will look forward to working on behalf of the members of MWA, with the DNR under her leadership.
