DFL Rep. Persell seeking another term for District 5A
BEMIDJI—District 5A Rep. John Persell, DFL-Bemidji, will seek another term in November with veterans affairs and education as key pieces to his platform.
"It wasn't a tough decision," Persell said. "After terms of dealing with deficits and asking 'what are we going to cut?,' now we have a surplus. So now we can go back and work with colleagues across the aisle to put some funding into our needs."
