It was a tough night for Fraters Libertas endorsed candidates in the hotly contested Hennepin County soil and water conservation district races.
In District 5, Karl Hansen fell to Jeff Beck (no, for the last time Atomizer, he's NOT that Jeff Beck ) by twelve points. And in a multi-candidate scrum in District 3, our man Ben Torell lost by a mere 6000 votes:
BEN TORELL 97413 29.06%
JAMES WISKER 103540 30.88%
Who says your vote doesn't count? We congratulate the winners and pray for their success in the trying times ahead for soil and/or water.
