January 5, 2021

The Bemidji League of Women Voters hosted Daniel Jourdain Bemidji City Council at Large candidate in a virtual interview on December 29, 2020. The interview is posted on the League's YouTube page and on our Facebook page where it can be viewed at any time.

Dave Larson, the other candidate on the ballot, declined to be interviewed by the Bemidji League of Women Voters. The election will take place Tuesday, February 9th, 2021, and is to fill the City Council at Large Position that was vacated by Councilor Jim Thompson due to health reasons. All City of Bemidji residents over the age of 18 are eligible to vote in this election.

Daniel Jourdain has been a resident of Beltrami County for over 30 years. He is the father of three children and is currently employed at the Minnesota Chippewa Tribe as an Employment Specialist. With an educational background in Law Enforcement, public safety is a key priority. Other issues that Mr. Jourdain would like to focus on are economic development and affordable housing. Jourdain believes in the fundamentals of teamwork and partnerships which have the potential to reshape the image of Bemidji by bridging the gaps for opportunity and equality so that we can all work together. Mr. Jourdain decided to run for Bemidji City Council to make a difference in our community and believes Bemidji deserves leadership that brings everyone together.
