Drotos makes second bid for County Board

Paul Drotos is running for the District 5 seat on Goodhue County Board, which includes Wards 3 and 4 in Red Wing, as well as Wacouta. In his announcement Friday, Drotos noted that he nearly won theseat four years ago, trailing by 112 votes out of over 4,000 ballots cast. He called the fight against silica sand mining a success.

“The people of Goodhue County stood together and we prevented a disaster. Protecting the health and safety of our citizens will always be my top priority,” he said.

“As my friends retire, I hear more and more about the challenges of living on a fixed income. I know young families are struggling as well. My son and his wife are expecting their first child soon.

“Decisions made by the county commission affect people’s lives. It is time to re-evaluate how we provide county services,” Drotos said.
