Representative Steve Gottwalt officially resigned from the Minnesota House of Representatives yesterday [Monday].
Three republicans and two democrats have announced plans to run for the now-open seat. According to the St. Cloud Times, Iraq War veteran Scott MacHardy, former St. Cloud city councilman John Severson and Tama Theis are the republicans hoping for the spot as the representative.
St. Cloud school board member and democrat Joanne Dorsher says she is considering a run, as well as democrat Jerry McCarter who is also considering a bid for the 14A seat. 14A now covers west and south St. Cloud, Waite Park and St. Augusta. Rockville is no longer a part of the district after last year’s redistricting.
The democrats have set a tentative date of Saturday, January 26th for their special 14A endorsing convention at the St. Cloud Library.
