Lorrie Janatopoulos Files for District 6-B Seat

June 4, 2012 Updated Jun 4, 2012 at 12:24 PM CST

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.
