Jayesun Sherman running for State Representative in SW MN – broadband makes his shortlist

The Worthington Globe reports

Jayesun Sherman, a four-year member of the Windom City Council as Councilman-at-Large (Mayor Pro Tem), has announced his candidacy for the Minnesota State Representative seat being vacated by Rep. Rod Hamilton, who is retiring at the end of this year.

Broadband seems to make his top list of concerns…

“There are a host of needs in southwest Minnesota, which include childcare, broadband and infrastructure repair/replacement,” Sherman said. “In Windom alone, we are more than 250 childcare slots short. Statewide, the number is closer to 19,000. Government daycare centers may help to some degree, but we need much more. The mile-long red tape must be curtailed, and reasonable minds must prevail.”
