From Walt Fehst, former Robbinsdale City Manager:
I’ve known Bill and his family for nearly 40 years. I was the City Manager in Robbinsdale when Bill was first elected to the Council. He has always been smart, energetic and committed to service. He is not ego driven or searching for a political career beyond the City Council. From the beginning, he learned all he could about our finances. He helped build our financial reserve from a dangerously low 6% to over 50% of our General Fund Budget while keeping the city’s property taxes among the lowest in the six county Metro area. Bill’s creativity and ability to think out-of-the-box are the reason he has been a successful problem solver of typical City-related issues.
Bill has a calm demeanor. Maintaining his composure in tight situations and actively listening are qualities I appreciate in Bill. I witnessed him listening to upset citizens, searching for details and finding ways to help resolve and deescalate many problems.
Finally, and this is important to me, Bill is a very principled man. I’ve worked with several hundred Council members and elected officials throughout my career. Bill is among the most trustworthy. If Bill says he is committed…take it to the bank!
