Derrick Lehrke for Minnesota House District 54A

Yesterday, on his birthday, Derrick Lehrke formally filed to run for Minnesota House of Representatives District 54A. He issued the following statement:

“I am excited to announce today, my birthday, that I have officially filed to run for the House of Representatives for District 54A. While 54A is similar in geography to the old 57A district, due to redistricting from the 2010 census, 54A is a brand new district. My first mission is to begin the process of personally introducing myself to each and every citizen of the district. I suspect at some point this summer you will see me going door to door in your neighborhood; I want to hear from you! Every citizen’s input is important to me. I want to represent the entire district, and in order to do that most effectively I need to hear your voice.

As a member of the Cottage Grove City Council I have shown I will stand up for my constituents to make sure their voice is heard. In our current political climate, compromise has become a dirty word and understanding all sides of the many issues has become unpopular. I will lead by example. I will listen to all citizens concerns, and I will not be afraid to stand up to big special interests to fight for what is best for the citizens of 54A. Again, I am excited to formally file my candidacy for House Rep 54A. I invite voters to call me at 651-459-3932, email at Derrick@Vote4Derrick.com. You can also find me on Facebook and Twitter. I look forward to meeting each and every one of you over the coming months.”

District 54A is left open by retiring first term legislator John Kriesel. 54A includes Cottage Grove, Newport, St. Paul Park, Grey Cloud Island and South St. Paul.
