Veda Ponikvar endorses Robinson in 5B special

Shelley Robinson earned a notable endorsement in the House 5B special election Thursday. Former Chisholm newspaper publisher and longtime Iron Range leader Veda Ponikvar offered her support to Robinson. From the campaign release:

Ponikvar reports that “for the past 20 years, Shelley Robinson has been a passionate advocate for the less fortunate among our community and the entire Iron Range. Upon being appointed executive director of the Range Center, Shelley’s dedicated work has made the center known throughout the nation for its success and organization.  Shelley has devoted her life to serving those in need and has won the hearts and minds of the children and adults of the Iron Range in the process.  As a health and human services expert, she will without a doubt continue fighting for the necessary funding of health programs for our senior citizens and the disabled down in St. Paul.”

On Tuesday Chisholm Mayor Mike Jugovich and Buhl Mayor Craig Pulford endorsed Robinson.
