This week I received a phone call from County Attorney Pat Ciliberto asking my permission to place a “Hocevar for County Attorney” sign in my yard. As a former Shakopee police officer, I had many opportunities to work with Pat and was always impressed by his work ethic, character and leadership.
When I entered the race for the Minnesota House of Representatives earlier this year, I wanted to restore representation to the people of Scott County, which is why I ran under the Independence Party banner.
I’ve served Scott County as a prosecutor for 23 years, the last 12 as county attorney. Ron Hocevar and I met in 1995 when he joined the Scott County Attorney’s Office; he was later promoted to criminal division head, which included management and supervisory responsibility.
From the day I was sworn in to Congress, I have been a strong voice for the men and women of Minnesota’s Second District with an established record of representing the views and values of Minnesotans while fighting to ensure a more efficient and effective government.
