U.S. Representative District 1

JIM HAGEDORN REPUBLICAN: ballotpedia Summary, he's got a lot of experience in DC, so far no negative publicity from liberals. He didn't get the GOP endorsement, but broke his promise not to run after concerns Miller can run a serious campaign and is running well produced TV ads on cable, and he's worked in DC, and his father was in Congress. In 1974, Jim’s father was elected to Congress to represent southern Minnesota’s 2nd Congressional District. Shortly thereafter the family began splitting time between Washington, D.C. and Minnesota – spending the school year in the Virginia suburbs of DC and returning each summer to the Truman farm. Beginning at age 18, Jim worked full-time jobs as a busboy and telephone salesman to self-finance his education. Jim was accepted to George Mason University, graduating with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Government and Politics. In 1984, Jim was hired as the legislative assistant to former Minnesota Republican Congressman Arlan Stangeland. Jim handled an array of issues and successfully managed the Congressman’s legislative agenda, including stewardship of H.R. 916, a 1989 bipartisan “workfare” bill that required able-bodied welfare recipients to work for benefits. This bill was conceptually enacted into law shortly after Republicans won control of the House of Representatives in 1994. From 1991 to 1998, Jim served as the Director for Legislative and Public Affairs for the Financial Management Service, the U.S. Department of the Treasury agency responsible for the management of more than $2 trillion in Federal funds.  2009, Jim returned to his southern Minnesota roots and vied for the Republican nomination for Congress in Minnesota’s 1st District. Since, Jim has engaged in several entrepreneurial business ventures in Minnesota and throughout the United States. website

*RANDY GILBERT REPUBLICAN  Former mayor of Long Lake, Minnesota Randy Gilbert, who sought but lost the Republican endorsement for state auditor in 2010. 

After a world-class accounting education from the University of Minnesota-Duluth ("Go 'Dogs!"), my passion led to an extensive auditing career in the private and public sectors. My commitment to public service led to three terms as Mayor of Long Lake, where we successfully improved the efficiency and quality of our city's services. These are fundamental skills, training, and experience missing from the office of the current State Auditor. I also have the independence and integrity to serve as your State Auditor. The partisan obligations of our current State Auditor severely limit her ability to critically analyze expenditures by public employee unions who endorse, help fund, and largely control her election. 

Otto anti-mining? "Our current State Auditor receives money, endorsements, and backings from the very entities that she is supposed to audit," Gilbert said. "In the private sector, that gets you fired." Gilbert says his background of 25 years as an accountant and auditor will better serve the taxpayers of Minnesota. Gilbert says Otto is anti-mining, pointing to Otto's vote against nonferrous mineral leases as a member of the state Executive Council .Otto says she is not anti-mining, but Gilbert says Otto's vote proves she is. saying that "I'm not anti mining." Well, that vote is exactly anti mining because this is the start of the process. When you vote no, you stop the process from going forward," Gilbert said.

P-B Endorsement: Rochester School Board Seat 6: Anne Becker vs. Don Barlow
Story 
Two candidates for the school board — incumbent Anne Becker and challenger Don Barlow — offer differing ideas on how the district can bridge the gap.

incumbent, endorsed by Post Bulletin.  mother of three who is completing her first four-year term on the board, says the answer can be found in individualizing education. She said current technology and teaching practices offer educators the chance to tailor-make lessons and assignments for students, whether they are in gifted-and-talented programs or special education. She sees the same practices helping teachers reach struggling students. She earned a degree in Finance from The University of Iowa and a Computer Information Systems degree from Winona State University experience in both accounting and software development

Barlow spent his career as a firefighter before he retired to serve as the pastor for the Rochester Community Baptist Church.[1]  (Christian, probably conservative) pb: He noted studies show children exposed to education before kindergarten are able do better on tests and have higher graduation rates. "On the long-term benefit side there is income. We know those who fully participate and take advantage of pre-K education are higher wage earners and they become homeowners," He is a man of integrity and compassion for those who need help and has great insight into solving problems and working through conflicts especially in the culturally related areas of our city's education system. I believe that Don would serve our community well as a school board member.

Throndson sees the gap as the unnecessary and artificial product of society's tendency to categorize people according to race. People are people, and creating distinctions of race and ethnicity only serves to divide people...  running to fight for CTECH (Career and Technical Education Center at Heintz). 

My name is Terry Throndson and I am running for Seat 5 on the Rochester School ...MN. Honor Flight, and Chairman for Support Our Troops. Past BOD of Mn.

My name is Terry Throndson and I am running for Seat 5 on the Rochester School Board. I am a life long resident and graduated from John Marshall High School in 1970. I enlisted in the US Navy in 1971 and serve four years. I attended advance fire fighting, nuclear, biological and chemical and leadership schools. I am a Vietnam War Veteran. I received awards and letters of accommodations for my service.  I came home and started my own business, Throndson Oil & LP Gas Company. My business continues today 32 years later.


I have driven school bus for over 7 years. Been a  Junior Achievement Consultant for 12 years teaching at Willow Creek, Kellogg and Friedell Middle Schools. I continue to teach Patriotism at Pine Island, Byron, Rochester Schools and churches


I have been involved greatly in the community. In 2007 I was awarded the Rochester Mayor's Gold Medal Award for Community involvement. I am member of the Rochester Business Group. I am a Trustee and BOD member of the Soldier Field Veterans Memorial, BOD member of SE. MN. Honor Flight, and Chairman for Support Our Troops. Past BOD of Mn. Petroleum Marketers and MN. Patriot Guard Riders. I am a MN Patriot Guard and Wounded Warrior rider supporting our Veterans and their Families. A member of the "Beyond the Yellow Ribbon" committee.  Working with and helping Blue and Gold Star families. A supporter and sponsor for the Ronald McDonald House, Tee it up for the Troops and Ironwood Christian Ranch. 


I am running for Rochester School Board to get our school district back to the basics of education.  I have been a student of the ivory league and prestigious School of Hard Knocks. Here you not only pay for your education, but also for your mistakes. You learn  your errors and success's quickly. I have attended various technical and business schools to earn my business licenses and various permits. I attend seminars to keep up to date with technology.


I built my business from my boot straps up. I have built my customer base from being honest, fair,  educating my customers, to select quality products and employees. I have good communications skills. I know how to budget and manage a budget. Not afraid to ask for ideas/advice from customers and employees.  I do not know everything, but know enough to know when and where to ask for those who would be knowledgeable to help find the answers. I know how to make tough decisions. I am open minded and collaborative.


The present school board has been disappointing and dysfunctional for our schools, staff and community. Their lack of team effort, effectively managing school operations, communications with staff and community, responsibilities to its duties, policies and giving leadership to the school district as a whole has hurt this school district in trust, school budget, staff morale and loss student enrollment. Not everything can be blamed or put on the school board or district. The achievement gap remains. We need home and community involvement with positive influences and role models as well as from our schools staff. Have parents provide a good home environment that consists of good values, morals and work ethics. We need to keep our schools disciplined and structured. Rules, regulations and laws apply to everyone.


I feel that my 32 years as a business owner, managing money, employees and customers with good business ethics along with a strong voice and leadership skills will move our school district in the right direction.

JEAN MARVIN PhD (Liberal, promote free or cheap preschool which has never been shown to be effective in erasing any achievement gap)  - rea teacher union endorsed, she's a very experienced educator, probably favors entrenched establishment educrats and I would guess Common Core, but no sign of opinion. pb: Marvin says the achievement gap between white students and minority students is real. Schools did not create the gap. Society did. But schools are asked to solve the problem. And there is one sure-fire way to narrowing it, and that is to provide quality, affordable pre-kindergarten education for every child who qualifies...  For instance, one idea getting a new look by a Rochester finance committee is having later school start times, (another education fad, it's worse to make elementary kids start early instead) so students can get to school more rested. Community involvement: Rochester Civic Theatre, United Way, Diversity Council, First Presbyterian Church Councils; Rochester Festival of Music; advisor for many student groups.. Rochester must not give up on closing the achievement gap because it would mean we're giving up on some of our kids.

Associate Justice - Supreme Court 2WILHELMINA (MIMI) WRIGHTNONPARTISAN


Hancock is running a minimal campaign, plays hard to get with media: Pioneer Press: Until recently, Hancock, 59, was an agent with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. He doesn't have a campaign website and hasn't registered earnings with the Minnesota Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board. He said in an email that if elected, he would protect the state's taxpayers' and voters' liberties. Hancock did not respond to requests for an interview. He responded by email. He said he grew up in Bemidji, Minn. He did not say when he left Minnesota. He was a special agent in charge assigned to Homeland Security in Grand Island, Neb., but said in a Sept. 22 email that he planned to return to Minnesota in the Brainerd area toward the end of September. (Sounds like a conservative, maybe a Ron Paul sort of conservative)

Wright: Pioneer Press: Before she was appointed by Gov. Mark Dayton in 2012, Wright spent 10 years as a judge on the Minnesota Court of Appeals after serving as a Ramsey County district judge. She said her experience at all three levels in the justice system motivates her to run for re-election. Wilhelmina Wright - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Wilhelmina Marie "Mimi" Wright (born January 13, 1964) is an Associate Justice of the Minnesota Supreme Court.
