Your View: Vote for Karl Johnson in 19A special election

By Jeff Stagg, North Mankato

— Although everyone thought the elections were over in November, it is important for the people of District 19A to know that with the resignation or Terry Morrow, we need to get out and vote in the primary on Jan. 29 and at the special election on Feb. 12.

District 19A currently does not have a representative in St. Paul and we need someone to speak for us who is experienced, sensible, has a strong local background and is a proven leader. Karl Johnson has all of these traits and would be an excellent person to be the voice of District 19A.

Every vote counts so please take the time to get out and vote and after you have a chance to review the messages of each candidate, you will agree that Karl Johnson should represent District 19A.
