Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- Duluth Fire Department Captain Pete Johnson has announced he is running for Minnesota House of Representatives District 7A seat.
Johnson currently serves on the City of Duluth’s Labor Management Committee and previously served on the Civil Service Reform Group. He also served as a member of the Steering Committee of Progressive Action for a number of years.
“As a labor leader and firefighter, it is my job to help people in their darkest days,” Johnson said. “I will take the skills I have gained dedicating my life to the people of Duluth and fight to strengthen Duluth’s middle class. If elected, I will be an advocate for all citizens of Duluth to ensure access to good, living-wage jobs, affordable healthcare and an education system that works at all levels.”
Multiple candidates have stepped up to fill the 7A seat that will be left vacant after Rep. Thomas Huntley announced he would not seek re-election.
Johnson says he will be seeking the DFL and labor endorsement.
