Elections Have Consequences
Trump or Biden?
Smith or Lewis?
Stauber or Nystrom?
We tend to focus our interest on national elections. These races are important, and a lot of money will be spent trying to convince us to vote either for them or against them, but don’t forget about our local municipal and judicial elections. You probably won’t see television ads talking about Peggy Anderson or Stephen Skogman, but if you live in Mt. Iron that election may impact your life more than the national ones.
The city councilors, mayors, school board members and judges we elect have a big impact on our lives. They set property tax levies, put bond referendums forward, set education policy, interpret legislative intent, are responsible for getting pot holes filled, license businesses and issue a myriad of permits. Take the time to educate yourself about these candidates. Ask them questions about our business climate and let them know what issues are important to you.
Here is a list of candidates in the contested municipal and judicial elections in our region.
