Two legislators representing the Winona area have filed for re-election Tuesday.
Democratic State Representative Gene Pelowski of Winona told Winona Radio News he filed for a 14th term, in the Minnesota House. Pelowski was first elected in 1986. He will run in the new District 28-A which is slightly larger than his former District 31-A.
Also filing was Republican John Howe of Red Wing. In Winona Tuesday Howe said he wants to serve a four-year term. He was elected in 2010 and said he was present at every senate roll-call vote this year which he calls important. He will run in the new District 21 which is slightly larger than his former District 28. His new district still includes Goodview and parts of western Winona County.
Also filing was former Lewiston-Altura superintendent Bruce Montplaisir who filed as a Demmocrat for the House District 21-A seat currently held by Republican incumbent Steve Drazkowski. Montplaisir ran for the same seat two years ago.
