Fundraising keeps school board member from behind bars
District 833 School Board Member Jim Gelbmann got himself out of fundraising jail Thursday, June 18. His fictional bail-bond money came from some unexpected sources.
Gelbmann, also Minnesota Deputy Secretary of State, has been raising money for the past two months for the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
The Maplewood-Woodbury chapter asked him to participate in the jail scenario and set his "bail" at $1,600.
