Mayors back Choi for County Attorney
St. Paul, Minn. (Sept. 15, 2010) – John Choi’s campaign continues to build momentum as he announced today the endorsement of two Ramsey County Mayors: Roseville Mayor Craig Klausing and Falcon Heights Mayor Peter Lindstrom. Choi now has the support of eight of Ramsey County’s Mayors; every single Mayor in Ramsey County who has endorsed a candidate for Ramsey County Attorney has endorsed John Choi.
“It’s no surprise that John has such broad support from Ramsey County Mayors,” said Klausing, who has been Mayor of Roseville since 2004. “He is exceptionally well qualified to be County Attorney. John understands how to manage prosecutors and he has a proven record of developing innovative solutions to problems like domestic abuse and gang violence. We need his leadership in Ramsey County.”
“Considering the tough economic times facing our state and country, its important that our next County Attorney is someone who understands how to manage a budget and do more with less,” said Lindstrom, the Mayor of Falcon Heights since 2007. “When John was Saint Paul City Attorney, he found ways to save taxpayer dollars while still achieving phenomenal results. That is why I’m supporting him for County Attorney.”
Lindstrom and Klausing join more than 100 current and former elected officials supporting John Choi, including six other Mayors in Ramsey County: Arden Hills Mayor Stan Harpstead, Lauderdale Mayor Jeff Dains, Maplewood Mayor Will Rossbach, North Saint Paul Mayor Mike Kuehn, Saint Paul Mayor Chris Coleman and Vadnais Heights Mayor Susan Banovetz.
“John has worked very hard to reach out to every community in Ramsey County,” said Maplewood Mayor Will Rossbach. “When he’s County Attorney, he’ll make sure every voice is heard.”
