As I explain in my detailed career history, before I went to law school, I ran a cybercafe in Uptown for several years. I was fortunate to have some terrific employees, and I’ve stayed in touch with many of them. Although they owe me absolutely nothing, a number of my former employees were among the first people to sign up as supporters, and—without any prompting from me—they said some very kind things. On Facebook, Andy Schwich said:
Brian C. Hagerty is a fine man. He was an exceptional boss and friend when I worked at CyberX so many years ago. He is running for Hennepin County District Judge in Minneapolis. Pop over to his site and get to know him yourself. Help him out if you can. Share his page and give him your vote. He’d make a great judge.

Although I don’t live in Minneapolis any more, I still consider it my home. As a former employee of Brian’s, I have the unique experience of being able to vouch for Brian’s excellent ability to manage and organize a successful business, as well as be an unbiased mediator when dealing with various issues amongst employees, customers, etc. I fully endorse Brian as the next Hennepin County District Judge!
And Andy LeMay said:
Brian was a great owner and boss, and it’d be an honor to support him.
These folks don’t know me as a lawyer, but they know me as a person. I’m humbled and gratified at their expressions of support.
