NY Mills man announces bid for House District 2B
David Sobieski has announced his candidacy for Minnesota House District 2B and his intention to seek the DFL endorsement. Sobieski is a resident of Butler Township in Otter Tail County.
"I'm running for Minnesota House District 2B because of my commitment to rural Minnesota," he stated in a press release. "I want to represent our rural interests, not ideologies. I am a moderate who believes in bipartisanship. I believe I can best represent the majority of folks in this district. I want to invest in our communities."
He added that, "Where bipartisanship is possible, I will work hard to achieve it. Compromise and consensus are necessary to get our work done. I am a problem solver who wants to work in a spirit of cooperation. I don't have all the answers, but I am a good listener. I hope you agree and will join me on the path to improving northern Minnesota."
Sobieski is a veteran of the United States Air Force, having served as a parachute rigger and sewer from 1987 through 1990. He is a graduate of the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities, with a degree in adult education and creative writing.
Sobieski and his wife, Amy, currently own and operate CanvasWork Inc., a sewing and manufacturing business in New York Mills. They have been married for 14 years and have two sons, John, age 11, and Henry, age 9.
