Letter: Rarick is a true citizen statesman


October 23, 2020

Jason Rarick should be returned to the Minnesota State Senate, District 11, on Nov. 3. District 11 includes all of Carlton and Pine counties, the eastern half of Kanabec County and four precincts in southwestern St. Louis County. The senator served as a representative in the legislature from 2014 to 2019 in House District 11B and was elected to the senate in a special election to replace Tony Lourey in 2019.

Senator Rarick is a lifelong resident of Pine County. He has been active in the community as a 30-year member of the Knights of Columbus, is a trustee at St. Joseph’s Church in Beroun and is a board member for Habitat for Humanity. The senator became an electrician in 1990 and a member of IBEW 110 in 1992, a master electrician in 1997 and a self-employed electrical contractor in 2004 starting his own business, Rarick Electric. He likes to say that “he’s an electrician, not a politician.”

The senator believes in protecting life from conception to natural death. He has a 100-percent lifetime score from the Minnesota Concerned Citizens for Life organization. He opposes dismantling or defunding the police, and supports the mining industry and Enbridge’s plans for the Line 3 oil pipeline. Sen. Rarick also supports the Second Amendment and is endorsed by Minnesota Gun Owners Caucus and the NRA.

Sen. Rarick is endorsed by multiple unions: International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers 110, North Central States Regional Council of Carpenters, International Union of Operating Engineers Local 49, and the Minnesota Pipe Trades Association. He is also endorsed by the Minnesota Chamber of Commerce Leadership Fund PAC.

Sen. Jason Rarick is a true citizen statesman and deserves your vote.
