Chisago County Commissioner, Ben Montzka, Stacy, filed for reelection to a fourth term as county commissioner. Montzka is the board’s senior member where he represents Wyoming and Stacy.
“This is the fourth year in a row Chisago County has not raised the tax levy,” Montzka said. “By working with our unions and employees, we have been able to accomplish this without a significant loss in services to residents.”
Montzka grew up in Wyoming and has a law practice there. Montzka, his wife, Emily, and their three children have a hobby farm in Stacy. Besides Montzka’s law degree, he holds degrees in music education and piano and was a music teacher at The Music Connection in Forest Lake.
