Lorrie Janatopoulos has filed to run for the DFL State Representative District 6 B seat after Tom Rukavina announced he was not running for re-election.
Janatopoulos served as the Planning Director for the Arrowhead Economic Opportunity Agency for over 10 years; a development program serving vulnerable people.
“These times require experience and a proven ability to work with people and get the job done. With over 30 years of community service, including workforce training, housing development and early childhood education, I have been real-world tested,” Janatopoulos said.
Other candidates signed up to run for this seat include DFL-er Jason Metsa, DFL-er Dave Meyer and Republican Jesse Colangelo.
Filings close for state office on June 5th.
Rukavina retired in May 2012.
