In his first six years as a U.S. Senator, Minnesota’s Al Franken has gained a reputation among his peers as an open, hard-working representative of the people who regularly crosses party lines to solve problems. He squeaked into the Senate by 312 votes but bested the combined total of all his GOP challengers by more than 2,000 in the recent primary.
Marla Vagts will bring that same independent spirit to her work as 58B’s state representative, listening more than she talks and seeking compromise to move forward.
If you strolled through the exhibits at the Dakota County Fair in Farmington recently, there’s a good chance you stumbled upon Marla Vagts, Minnesota House candidate for 58B. Vagts spent several days at the fair meeting with Dakota Country residents about the change in tone and substance they’d like to see in the Minnesota Legislature. She believes that in order to represent people, first you need to make yourself available and seek out their opinions. Here, Marla is pictured at the Dakota County DFL booth.
