Mark Groettum - 8th District

According to the candidate's Web site, Mark Groettum rates the economy as the cornerpiece of his campaign. He links himself with Sen. Norm Coleman, who, he says "is doing a great job and is working hard for our area as evidenced by his work in Hoyt Lakes on coal gasification. He needs Republican help in the House." Groettum, 46, is an attorney with a general practice. His Web site says he "sought election to the Minnesota state house in 1994 and 1996, and is currently the chair of the Senate district 5 Republicans -- an area which includes the Hibbing and Virginia areas and stretches down to the Grand Lake area near Duluth. Mark grew up in Proctor and is a Duluth Central, St. Olaf College, and Hamline University School of Law graduate. He is married, with a 5 year old daughter, and is active in his community as a member of Rotary and the Chamber of Commerce. He sits on the Board of Directors for the Hibbing Kinship Mentoring Program, Hibbing Parents Nursery School and the Hibbing Community College Foundation."

Tolls for thee, Minnesota?
In the next couple of years, Minnesotans could be paying tolls to use certain metropolitan highway lanes. State and federal lawmakers are considering plans to charge lane fees to relieve congestion and fund new road projects. The proposal is part of a mix of highway development and financing plans announced by Gov. Tim Pawlenty's administration and legislators from both parties.
