House District 8B candidate Bob Cunniff to visit New York Mills

Minnesota House District 8B DFL endorsed candidate Bob Cunniff has scheduled a "Meet and Greet" event at the Eagles Restaurant in New York Mills from noon-1 p.m.  on Thursday, June 28. The public is invited to attend.

Cunniff will be spending the day talking with community members and door-knocking to meet residents.

Well known in the Alexandria area, Cunniff has been a teacher, coach, and sports broadcaster.  Since announcing his candidacy in March, he has met and talked with hundreds of voters of the new District 8B. 

"I am running because I want to bring trust and cooperation back to our elected officials," said Cunniff.  "The people of this area deserve to be effectively represented. I want to be a voice for the middle and working class. I am looking forward to getting to know the good people of the New York Mills area."

New redistricting lines join east Otter Tail and northeast Douglas County into the new House 8B, pitting Cunniff against GOP-endorsed Mary Franson, also of Alexandria.
