People seldom realize that the elected officials that have the most direct impact on their lives are not their Senators or U.S. Representatives, or even the President, but their state and local representatives.  This include mayors, city councilpersons, state senators, state house members and other local officeholders.  It also includes the people behind the scenes that help make government and campaigns happen.

We want to provide a spotlight to some of these people and get their takes on local government and policies, the state of Minnesota politics and their personal views on how we can improve government.

If you would like to nominate someone for the Spotlight, contact us and we’ll try to contact the individual.  Because if you are interested, no doubt others are as well!
