Uh oh—looks like we Brown County Democrats had better play catch-up! The Brown County Republicans appear to be fielding a full slate for District 3 Legislature:
Aberdeen School Board member Todd Kolden’s Sunday announcement means the seat Al Novstrup is vacating to challenge me for the District 3 Senate seat has a Republican contender. Kolden won a three-year term on the school board in 2013.
Incumbent Rep. Dan Kaiser has filed his petition to run for reëlection. So far, I’m the only declared Democrat in the District 3 Legislative race. Friends, let’s fill those slots and turn Brown County back to D!
Update 16:48 CST: Local Dems are on it: Brown County Dems are meeting Thursday evening, March 10, 7 p.m., at the Ward Pub in downtown Aberdeen. Democrats, bring your aspirations and elbow grease!
