MANKATO (TEC News), March 28 – Two local residents are planning to run for Rep. Kathy Brynaert’s seat in congress next session. Mankato city council members Jack Considine and Karen Foreman both recently announced their plans as candidates. Considine has many ideas, one involving a boost in our transportation system. “Rather than all light rail and things going into the Twin Cities, I’d like to explore the idea of some regional hubs.” Foreman is looking at some transportation and environmental issues, but continually focuses on the things others miss that are important. “I try to suggest and ask questions and has staff explore another area that they weren’t thinking about.” For more information, they welcome questions and comments.
