Mayor's Welcoming Message
Hello Residents of Becker!
I am humbled by the opportunity you have given me to lead the City of Becker. Becker is on the cusp of something great and I’m absolutely thrilled to be part of this community during these exciting times.
My family and I have called Becker our home for over 20 years. One of my family’s favorite things to do here in Becker is to take in the sights of Snuffy’s Landing while kayaking on the Mississippi River. One of my personal favorites is the people who call Becker home. I am amazed every day by the community pride each of us has. I have met a lot of you at various community activities, while sitting on various committees throughout Becker and by being on City Council for the past 8 years.
My family’s values fit well into what I see as the city’s priorities:
- Augmenting the City’s collaborative efforts;
- Promoting economic vitality;
- Continuing to strengthen the City’s financial position;
- Reinforcing the organization as a number one employer;
- Enhancing our community’s safe, healthy and sustainable lifestyle.
Becker has so much to offer:
- Great schools;
- Great recreational opportunities;
- Great transportation;
- Great corporate partners;
- Superb volunteers;
- Competitive tax rate.
The Becker City Council and I have hit the ground running. It is true we have some challenges in front of us. It is also true that we look forward to meeting those challenges. We have exciting times ahead!
You have my pledge to make Becker a better place, our government more effective, and our image more positive. I have great confidence in what we can accomplish as we move into the future.
Becker truly is a great place to live and will only become better!
Tracy Bertram, Mayor
City of Becker, Minnesota
