Here’s my wife Briana pledging to uphold the Constitution of Minnesota as a new member of the Red Lake Falls city council. Been a crazy three years!
Among other things she has pledged to ban all crickets from Red Lake Falls residents. Violators will receive a mandatory minimum one week sentence of sleeping on the couch
For those wondering: yes we are still finding crickets in the house. Today one was bopping around under the coffee table until this savage beast dispatched it with extreme prejudice
Bri carried this handkerchief with her for her swearing in. It belonged to her great-grandmother Johanna Loretta Bach, who was born in New York state in 1904, before women had the right to vote.
Briana's held on to that handkerchief since the early 1990s when Great-Grandma Bach passed away. She's the first woman in her family to hold elected office. The I Voted sticker is from 2016, when she cast her ballot for the first woman major party presidential nominee.
Our boys were at the swearing-in tonight. Beforehand she explained all of this to them. A span of five generations in one room, a tangible connection between three little boys in Minnesota and an ancestor born over a century before they were, halfway across the country.
