Lee announces run for Minnesota Senate District 11

 

November 15, 2019

Michelle Lee is running to represent District 11 in the Minnesota Senate. The Moose Lake resident will seek the DFL endorsement at the district convention in March.

Lee told supporters and attendees of the HD 11A Homegrown Harvest Festival Dinner fundraiser as long as the Minnesota Senate is controlled by Republicans, access to quality healthcare, first-class education and training of our future workforce, the expansion of broadband and attention to the critical needs of our infrastructure in Greater Minnesota are in jeopardy.

“With the election of a Republican in the March 2019 special election, we not only lost our seat at the table, we lost our voice in St. Paul,” Lee said during her announcement at the Cloquet Labor Temple.

A former television news anchor and reporter turned political activist, Lee said she will be a strong voice for those she seeks to represent.

“Our communities are more than a pit stop on the super highway to something better. We matter, our families matter and together we can make a difference,” Lee said.

Senate District 11 includes communities in Pine, Kanabec, Carlton and St. Louis counties. Lee and her husband, Gary Kovanen, are longtime residents of Moose Lake.
