A HUGE thank-you to the SD50 sign team volunteers for 2022! From identifying sign locations, providing distribution garages, installing, repairing, tracking and removing --- this crew did it all. Thanks, too, to the hundreds of generous homeowners who agreed to display candidate yard signs.
Handling Bloomington locations, plus some Edina: Michael Barg (Lead coordinator), John Beebe, Amber Bernhardt, Matt Berner , Larry Frost, Dan Hallberg, Dennis Hamilton, Don Johnson, Duane Jones, Mike Moranz, Al Muerhoff, John Pelto, Randy Sutter, Julia Tate, Pam Tucholke, Vince Riehm, and the Beebe campaign team block-walking volunteers.
Handling Edina locations, plus some Bloomington: Winnie Martin (Lead coordinator), Louis Dennard, Carol Kerr, Owen Michaelson, Jim Ripple, Mary & Pat Ryan and the Fulton campaign team volunteers.
It was an especially challenging year for the install teams. Not only were they coping with rock-hard dry ground for initial installs, but 6 consecutive weeks of sign vandalism along major streets required repeated sign replacement. Sweep teams worked in wet and cold conditions after election, gathering both the signs and the reusable "H" stands and rebar sign holders.
If you live in Edina or Bloomington and still have a sign or holder components, call the Senate District (952-856-3028) to leave a message with your address and a volunteer will stop by.
Local sign ordinances that limit number and placement of signs in Edina go back into effect after Nov 18, per MN State Law. While Bloomington does not have similar restrictions, we note that candidates retain ownership of their campaign signs (except those you may have purchased) and we respectfully request that all signs and hardware be returned.
