ABOUT ME

Hi, I'm Sheldon

WHERE I COME FROM

I am a family man. I was born and raised in Minnesota, where I learned the values of faith, family, and hard work. I have lived in Wadena, for 18 years, with my wife, Sharin. We have been married for 33 years and have six grown children. We live on a small farm just outside of Wadena. I graduated from Clearbrook high school and Wadena Technical College in the Construction/Electrician program.

The last 21 years, I have been an Electrical Area Representative with the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry.  I am currently a Wadena County Commissioner, serving my second term. I have also been the Chairman of the Wadena County Republicans for the last 10 years as well other various leadership positions within the Republican Party over the years.
