Locally, there will be a primary election for Chisago County Commissioner Districts 1 and 5. There are three candidates for Dist. 1 and four candidates for Dist. 5. Each district will be pared to two candidates at the Aug. 14 Primary.
The Post Review asked the candidates to respond to several questions so you can get to know them and make your choice for the election.
In North Branch there will be an election Aug. 14 for Mayor, although there no longer is the need, as the third candidate pulled out of the race. It was, however, too late to have his name removed from the ballot. The only two candidates that will be on the November ballot are Ron Lindquist and Kirsten Hagen Kennedy.
Here are the Commissioner candidates’ responses.
