CLEAR LAKE – Doug Nelson, rural Clear Lake farmer, has announced his intent to file papers for the District 2 Cerro Gordo County Supervisor seat as a Democrat.

Nelson, operator of a family farm near Thornton, has 10 years experience with leadership development through volunteer work for Toastmasters International Corporation, a public speaking and leadership development nonprofit. He is currently serving as the state’s Chief Ambassador after having served as District Governor, the top state-level leader, in 2009 and 2010.

Nelson also serves as a trained mediation consultant for Lagrange Point Solutions, LLC.
“I believe in finding practical solutions for today’s problems by building outcomes that improve conditions for everyone. Since I live in the rural part of the county and pay agricultural as well as dwelling property taxes, I understand the need to balance services, environmental concerns and safety with keeping taxes manageable. My experience in mediation and leadership, as well as a life time of dealing with the unexpected while farming and raising a family, have prepared me to serve the county. “
