Cokato Mayor

Gordy Erickson is seeking the position of mayor in Cokato.

Gordy Erickson

Why are you running for this particular office?

There was a need for a qualified candidate, and I felt that my nine years of experience as a council member would help me in this office.

What do you think are two major issues at this time, and what do you propose to do about them?

1. Local government aid (LGA) cuts have hurt our community. We need to find creative ways to fund projects.

2. If the people of Cokato vote for a new public safety building, it needs to be planned, funded, and built.

Why should you be elected?

I should be elected, because I’m just a regular working guy who has some knowledge of local government. I will bring a new perspective to the mayor’s office.
