He has gained his work ethic and a unique perspective from his experiences.
Bryce was also an intern for the City of Winona where he assisted the Community Development department in laying the foundation for an entrepreneurial space in the downtown area. This led him to an organization named Community and Economic Development Associates (CEDA), where he assists several rural cities in southeastern Minnesota answer their economic development challenges. He serves in Spring Grove, Mabel, Hayfield, and Rushford Village. He has worked on Dodge County’s Comprehensive Plan and Pine County’s Strategic Housing Action Plan.

Bryce also serves as a councilman for the City of Lewiston, where he serves on the EDA board, Parks and Recreation Committee, and Bicycle Trails Advisory Committee. He has helped foster in road improvement, design economic development strategies, and has prioritized environmental progress in Lewiston. He also serves on the board of directors for the Crossings Center, which is a nonprofit based in Lewiston that aims to make the Lewiston area more recreationally-friendly for both residents and visitors.
Bryce has a drive for helping rural Minnesota because his life has always been contingent on the successes—and failures, of the small cities in southeastern Minnesota. Bryce wants to ensure that small cities are viable amongst the urban giants in the metro that continue to grow. Bryce has always been passionate about public service and asks for your support as he embarks on his journey to be elected as the Winona County Commissioner for District 5. He asks for any support you can give him, whether it be a donation to his campaign, volunteering your time, and most importantly: your vote on Tuesday, November 6th, 2018 (election day) against a 16-year incumbent. It is time for a change in Winona County’s governance.
