County population growing as expected

 

This fall, two Wright County commissioners (Christine Husom and Mark Daleiden) will be on the ballot after serving two-year terms. Back in 2012, due to changes in the size of commissioner districts, both were forced to run for re-election as all five commissioners were forced by state law to run for re-election because of changes made in redistricting.
At the time, there was an intentional effort to make the fastest growing areas in the county – the Otsego/St. Michael/Albertville area – the smallest district in order to be able to accommodate growth in hopes of avoiding a similar situation happening following the 2020 census. Three years into that process, so far so good.
