Elect Donald Kliewer for Red Wing City Council


If you do not already know me, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Donald Kliewer, and I will be on the ballot this August 9th to represent the citizens of Ward 2 on the Red Wing City Council. This position has been vacant for some time, and the election on August 9th will fill that vacant position.

I am currently semi-retired, having stepped down the end of December in 2020 after 15 years as the General Manager of Q Media Group, KWNG-KCUE Red Wing, KLCH-Lake City, and WBHA Wabasha.

On a Personal note, I enjoy the “Outdoors” hence I continue with the production of our Radio Show “The Valley Outdoors” You can check it out at I love to fish & hunt and feed the birds.

My wife and I live on Woodland Ave. in Red Wing, have one son also who lives on Woodland Ave, one son who lives in St. Louis Park, and a daughter who also lives in Red Wing. Four grandchildren under 4 years of age. Ya, it is a hoot at holiday time!

The following is a brief snapshot the experience I will bring to the Red Wing City Council. I hope you agree my previous experience makes me a good fit for the Ward 2 seat.
