Greg Lemke wants the Democratic Party nomination to run for the Minnesota House District 9A seat. Republican Morrie Lanning has held the seat since 2002.

Lemke said state government is trying to balance its budget on the backs of local governments. He says the cuts have fallen disproportionately on areas like higher education and social services.
