Next week's special election will fill Bemidji City Council at-large vacancy
February 4, 2021
BEMIDJI -- A special election next week will make all the seats on the Bemidji City Council full again after a number of vacancies in the past year.
The race will determine who holds the city's at-large seat through 2022. The position was vacated last summer when Jim Thompson, who was elected in 2018, resigned because of health reasons.
One of the candidates in the special election is Dave Larson, 75. A semi-retired architect, Larson has been a Bemidji resident since 2007 and has served two terms as a city elected official. He was mayor from 2010-2012 and the at-large council member from 2014-2018.
