Letter: Candidate to seek more HRA funding

My name is Lavern Pederson. I am running for the Minnesota House of Representatives in District 5A.

I’m running because I see more people who need help and they are not getting the help to get back on their feet.

One of the first things that I would do is to tell both parties that the voters sent the representatives to work together and do the work they elected us to do. I hope you will vote for me in the primary election on Aug. 12 because I know how to work with all parties and I will work for you.

One of the first things I would do is get more funding for the Housing and Redevelopment Authority in Bemidji and Minnesota because they really need it.

I live in Northland Apartments. I know they could use more help.

The last two years I was told that there would be chances that more people would get more help, but I cannot see it.

If you vote for me, I will do it. All I want is a chance, and if I can’t do it I will not run again.

Lavern “Pedie” Pederson
