Marj Fogelman has announced her candidacy for Minnesota House District 21B.
Fogelman describes herself in a press release as a wife, mother and business owner, who is running “because I care about my kids' future, our country, and our freedoms.”
Explained Fogelman: “When the government shut down small businesses, I was angry. Why should the government be allowed to choose who is essential? Why should our children be forced to learn on zoom when we pay schools to educate our children? I watched the issues it caused with my own child; it has been destructive for students statewide. These are just a handful of issues that really made me wake up to what was going on with our state.”
Fogelman, who said she opposes what she calls tyrannical mandates brought about COVID-19, added that she wants the state’s government to be fiscally responsible, and that election integrity and voter ID is needed.
Fogelman is the second candidate known to file for District 21B House candidacy, as Larry Liepold of Heron Lake announced his intention to seek the office last month.
The newly configured District 21B seat reflects much of the District 22B territory currently represented by legislator Rod Hamilton, who announced last month that he would not seek re-election. District 21B will include the eastern half of Nobles County, all of Jackson County and portions of Cottonwood, Martin and Watonwan counties.
