Malchow for 32-B
Today I write to you, my fellow community members and hopeful voters, with exciting news. District 32-B has a new DFL Candidate on the ballot. Katie Malchow has decided, to our great benefit, to run for MN House of Representatives.
Katie has been a resident in our area for over 15 years. She has supported our schools not only as a parent in the district but also as a Parent Teacher Organization board member. Katie actively lobbied, for our schools, their staff, parents and students seeking equal funding for all communities. As Executive Director of the Chisago Lakes Chamber of Commerce and owner of her own business she supports and understands the issues facing small businesses.
Katie’s passion for public service is driven by her love of community and the people who live here. Katie wants to represent you, your family, and what is important to you.
If you are looking for a representative that knows and understands the issues of small rural communities, businesses, schools and families that live there, Katie is that person.
