Quote: “The Mississippi River is the most important natural feature in our region. It needs a responsible steward. FMR is that steward.”

Hobbies: Beekeeper, avid skier, canoeing, camping.

Interesting book: Omnivore’'s Dilemma, by Michael Pollan. “Everyone should read it. It raises questions we all need to think about.”

Favorite Mississippi River location: “A cliff band along the edge of Grey Cloud Island that you can paddle underneath if you’'re on the main stem of the river. It's unique and picturesque.”

Last memorable vacation: Summer of 2006, when my wife and I took our then 4- and 6-year-old kids to Alaska’s Kenai Fjords National Park. “It’'s an amazing place.”
