I’ve know Mark for several years now since we worked on a campaign together. When I first met him, he was with the Minnesota Attorney General’s Office prosecuting consumer fraud cases. He left their and joined the Housing Preservation Project where he has been working hard (for meager pay) to help people keep their houses in these trying economic times.
Mark is running for the open judicial seat in Ramsey County that resulted from Judge Monahan’s retirement (I’d love to get Judge Monahan’s portrait in here!). I wish him the best of luck (and I’m actively supporting him) because he would make a great judge.
UPDATE: Mark won the election and is now a District Court Judge for the Second Judicial District of Minnesota. A nice article in Minnesota Lawyer about Mark.
