KEYC - Longtime Attorney Announces Bid For Senate Seat

Longtime Attorney Announces Bid For Senate Seat

Posted: Updated:
North Mankato resident and personal injury lawyer Nick Frentz announces he will be running for Minnesota Senate District 19 Thursday morning.
The seat will be left vacant after incumbent Kathy Sheran announced early this week she would not seek re-election in 2016.
Frentz decided to run because he is a long time resident and wants to give a strong voice for the district at the legislature.
He is seeking the nomination for the DFL party because he considers himself a longtime democrat, and says he believes his law background understanding and interpreting laws will help him at the capitol.
Candidate for Senate District 19 Nick Frentz says, "I think the experience that's most important for me is that working for the people of the district, really get to know them, and you like them, and you respect them, and you want to do well for them.  And I think the number one factor, in me deciding to run for state Senate is, I want to do well for the people that live in this district."
He says he made the decision to run for office when he was ten years old, but has become more serious about it over the last two years, and said he wouldn't have run if Senator Sheran would have decided to run again.
