In a previous post, I had noted it was rumored, but this morning it has been officially announced that Sioux Falls City Councilor Starr is going to seek to replace Pam Nelson, who has withdrawn from the MInnehaha County Treasurer’s race.
I am announcing today my intent to run for Minnehaha County Treasurer. I will be asking the Minnehaha County Democratic Party Central Committee tonight to place my name on the November Ballot,” Pat Starr said Tuesday morning.
Starr, who’s tenure on the Sioux Falls City Council has been highlighted by attacking gun owners, and recently claimed that that the carving of Mt. Rushmore was “vandals erasing history” is facing Republican Minnehaha County Chairwoman Kris Swanson.
Watch for this race to heat up.
