Rep Sundin promotes better broadband as a priority for MN State House 11A

WDIO has been reporting on many Minnesota Elections. Today they report on the race for Minnesota state House district 11A between DFL incumbent Mike Sundin and his republican challenger Jeff Dotseth. Sundin mentions broadband is a priority…

The district covers portions of St. Louis county, Carlton county, parts of Pine county and certain precincts in Sturgeon Lake. We heard from DFL incumbent Mike Sundin and his republican challenger Jeff Dotseth.

Incumbent Mike Sundin says that broadband concerns are going to be a topic of prioritization.

“As far as projects we need to address and issues we need to address moving forward, I think broadband is going to be a critical issue that we deal with,” says Sundin. “Certainly expansion of broadband throughout the state is very, very necessary. Not only for schools but for tele-medicine and any communication that’s critical for the elderly.”
Republican challenger Jeff Dotseth highlighted the importance of mining efforts in the region.
