MN-8: Cravaack to hold second Range town hall in Ely

Adding some context for the MN-8 series I’m writing, Rep. Chip Cravaack will hold his second Iron Range town hall at Vermilion Community College in Ely Wednesday evening from 7-8 p.m. The college is on the north end of town off Camp Street.

Cravaack’s first Range town hall was in Mt. Iron last month, where a few sparks flew. This one might be a little friendlier, being off the Mesabi, but then again the controversial nature of nonferrous mining may end up being a bigger deal. Ely is home to some of the strongest support and opposition to the proposed mining projects. Cravaack’s top Range issue has been speeding permitting for the projects at the federal level.
