Groth seeks Goodhue County Board post

Steve Groth - a vocal opponent of wind farm development in Goodhue County and one of the founding members of Goodhue Wind Truth -- announced his candidacy Thursday for the 2nd District of the Goodhue County Board.

The rural Zumbrota native will challenge current Commissioner Richard Samuelson, who has held the seat since 1995.

Groth said opposition to wind development near the city of Goodhue and throughout Goodhue County was at the forefront of his decision to run.

A story will appear in the May 22 print edition.
