ROSEMOUNT MAYOR RUNNING FOR COUNTY COMMISSIONER
ROSEMOUNT MAYOR WILL RUN FOR A COUNTY COMMISSIONER
Chamber President Ed Kearney had coffee last week with Rosemount Mayor Bill Droste as he does from time to time to keep informed on our border. He had been their Mayor since 2002.
ROSEMOUNT MAYOR RUNNING FOR COUNTY COMMISSIONER in the 4th District of Dakota County.
BILL DROSTE has has overseen massive growth which is currently accelerating even more so with the Umore development area north of DCTC, the Home Depot massive Distribution Center under construction, the FED Ex Distribution Center recently approved at 42 & 52 and a downtown revitalization.
Dakota County District 4 was redrawn with the recent Census Changes (every 10 years) leaving the majority of Rosemount and Eagan in a different district making running for County Commissioner more appealing to Mayor Droste.
He said he is all in and will not run for another term as Mayor of Rosemount, win or lose. Formerly most of Rosemount and much of Eagan was represented by Joe Atkins in District 4 but Joe will now run in District 2 which has even more of InverGrove Heights and other cities.
Running against Rosemount Mayor Droste for County Commissioner is Logan O’Grady of Rosemount and John Murphy of InverGrove Heights.
