Bob Brooks

Our newsroom was in shock earlier this evening. Just a couple of minutes before News @5 we learned East Grand Forks city administrator and Grand Forks city council member Bob Brooks died today.

Bob was a favorite "source" for reporters. He was friendly and easy to talk with. Fairly rare for someone in government, he had a wonderful sense of humor. Most importantly, he was honest.

Bob was just 61. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

    Do you suppose the 2 jobs in 2 cities and 2 states caused stress and trying to build a new house ? Had to be a conflict of interest. By the way Mike McNamara seemed to hint/announce he is running for mayor ! greenglass4.
