State's DNR commissioner is no stranger to southwest Minnesota

During a recent visit to Windom, Minnesota DNR commissioner Tom Landwher was asked how well he knows the state's southwest region.

He didn't hesitate.

Tom rattled off names of local staff members. He talked about his work on wildlife area projects in the Wilder area. He even shared a favorite menu item from a restaurant he frequents during his annual trips to rural Lakefield, pheasant hunting.

Tom has hunted, camped, fished and toured virtually every nook and cranny of the state. He has walked the streams and hiked the trails. He takes pride in knowing the state, inside out.

That's one of the reasons he was confident he could do the job back in 2003, when he first considered a possible future role in the DNR commissioner's office. He officially showed his interest in the job when Gov. Mark Dayton became governor.

And, in 2011, Dayton interviewed Tom twice and offered him the job.
