Man From Bemidji Area Announces Candidacy For Minnesota House 2A
Jeremiah Liend announced his plan to run for the Minnesota House District 2A at the DFL caucus in Bemidji on Tuesday night.
Liend spoke with the caucuses within the district and outlined a three-plank platform that focuses on sustainable development, campaign reform, and criminal justice reform.
Liend has run for office three times: in 2004 and 2008 for Bemidji mayor, and in 2016 as a registered write-in candidate for Minnesota governor. Liend decided to announce his candidacy for the District 2A seat due to the recent withdrawal of Michael Northbird, who will be moving out of the district prior to the election.
Liend currently lives in Turtle River and works in the solar industry.
