Poppe files for reelection in bid for House seat
Seeking her ninth term to the Minnesota House of Representatives, Rep. Jeanne Poppe filed for reelection this week at the Mower County Government Center. First elected to office in 2004, Poppe believes her experience and perspective is needed now more than ever at the legislature.
“The challenge of COVID-19 is being felt across every sector of our economy, disrupting the daily lives of each and every member of our community, and its full impact won’t be felt for months,” she said. “While we were able to come together and take steps to provide support for affected workers, businesses, farmers, and families, we have much more to do.
