Jayesun Sherman has announced his candidacy for the Minnesota State Representative seat being vacated by Rep. Rod Hamilton, who is retiring at the end of this year.
Sherman is a four-year member of the Windom City Council as councilman-at-large. He was born in Plymouth, Massachusetts, and grew up in Green Bay, Wisconsin, later earning his bachelor’s degree from North Central University. After college, he spent 10 years in Asia, earned two master’s degrees, traveled abroad, taught for nearly 20 years and pastored for more than 25 years.
Sherman and his family — which includes wife Michelle and three adopted daughters — moved to Windom in 2012. While in Windom, Sherman has been a lead pastor, hospice chaplain, teacher and city councilman.
Said Sherman in a press release: “Among values that I hold dear and support wholeheartedly are the sanctity of life/pro-life, the First and Second Amendments, personal autonomy, small government with true accountability, law and order/police and common-sense reforms of immigration. I have always been a God-fearing conservative and my priorities are in this order: God, family, everything else.”
Minnesota House District 21B includes all or part of Cottonwood, Jackson, Nobles, Watonwan, and Martin counties. For more information on Sherman, visit jayesun4mn.org.
