Theresa Skorseth has announced she will run for the Little Falls City Council, to represent Ward 2.
In 2006, Skorseth was a Vista volunteer in service to the Morrison County Interfaith Hospitality Network, which sheltered and assisted homeless families with children, helping the parents find jobs, services and housing.
Until 2008, she was a program assistant with the Rural AIDS Action Network, which served people living with HIV or AIDS in Greater Minnesota and provided an educational arm to the public.
“My concern is for the marginalized of Little Falls,” said Skorseth. “I feel the present City Council has catered to the interests of the comfortable for too long, to the detriment of the poor and people of color.
“If elected, I will represent all citizens, but with special attention for the poor, for people of color and all those who have been ignored, exploited or harassed,” said Skorseth.
