Hein to run for District 31-B seat

Posted in Features

Al Hein, 55, a farmer from Mabel, has announced that he will run for the District 31-B seat in the Minnesota House of Representatives. Hein said he will seek the DFL endorsement for his candidacy.

In announcing his candidacy, Hein said he has been encouraged by the broad support from farmers and rural residents who believe that it is time for a change in representation in St. Paul.

“It is time to give voters a choice in their representation to ensure that southeast Minnesota is a better place to live,” Hein said.

If elected, Hein said that he will work toward equitable funding for education, an issue that has been ignored in the legislature. Hein added that he will be an advocate for rural Minnesota who will stand up to the metro legislators.

“After the recent tax cuts, and the reduction in spending, our cities and townships need to know that someone is working on their behalf for greater Minnesota,” Hein said.

“I look forward to working with the residents of Fillmore and Houston counties over the next several months, to listen to their concerns and earn their support for the November election,” Hein said.
