Primary race in 15B draws two candidates that list broadband as a top priority

The St Cloud Times reports on the Primary Race in 15B…

Republicans made up their minds already on the most contested Central Minnesota House seat, but Democratic voters have a chance to pick between two candidates in Tuesday’s primary.

Karla Scapanski has the DFL endorsement. She’s being challenged by former Bernie Sanders delegate Jessica Filiaggi.

Looks like both candidates have broadband at the top of their list…

Scapanski has worked as a dairy farmer, child care provider and community advocate. Her top issues include broadband access and job training, education and ending unfunded government mandates.

Filiaggi lives in Foley and works at a credit union. She wants to work on health care and rural issues, including broadband access, infrastructure development, transportation and sustainable jobs, Filiaggi told the St. Cloud Times in June.
