Duluth News Tribune endorses Senator Sandstede (Minnesota House District 6A) who promotes better broadband

Duluth News Tribune supports Senator Sandstede for Minnesota House District 6A

Four years ago when she first ran for the Minnesota Legislature, Rep. Julie Sandstede, a schoolteacher for 25 years, said her focus was, unsurprisingly, on education funding. Now seeking re-election for a second time, Sandstede has grown into a strong and dependable voice for Iron Range interests in St. Paul; remains an unwavering supporter of mining, including copper-nickel mining; and her priorities have expanded with her experience and knowledge to also include broader broadband, jobs, and economic development for the Range.

And more about broadband…

To encourage economic development and broadband infrastructure in her district, Sandstede sponsored the Telecommuter Forward bill to allow communities to designate themselves “telecommuter-friendly,” which opens the doors to partnerships with internet-access companies.
