This week: county and state officials
Countless advertisements and commercials have been on television for months signifying an important date. On Tuesday, Nov. 6 voters will cast their ballots on everything from who our next president should be to voting on the Sleepy Eye School District 84 operating levy.Over the next three weeks the Herald-Dispatch will profile candidates running for state, county, city and school board seats. Each candidate was given the same questions as those running for similar positions. All were given the same basic guidelines and the same amount of time to respond. This week, those running for positions of State Senate District 16B–Jerry (Pike) Pagel, Paul Torkelson and James Kanne–Senate District 16–Ted Suss and Gary Dahms–and Brown County Commissioners–First District Richard Seeboth, Second District James Berg and Third District, Scott Windschitl–will be profiled.
