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.
