Two more local candidates have confirmed their runs for the new Districts of 5A and 6B.

Mike Paulus, currently executive director of the Cass County Economic Development Corp., announced his candidacy for the newly formed House 5A District. Rep. John Poston’s recent retirement announcement leaves an open seat in District 5A.

After a quick mention on Friday’s Community Connection show, State Representative Josh Heintzeman, R-Nisswa, announced Monday that he will seek reelection in House District 6B, his home district in the new maps that were released last week

The new district remains largely unchanged compared to the current district and includes most of western Crow Wing County, including the cities of Brainerd, Baxter, Pequot Lakes, Nisswa, Merrifield, Jenkins and Breezy Point.
