Hasskamp excited for next step in election District 5


Kris Hasskamp said it’s been a whirlwind since being announced as the top vote getter in Tuesday’s Primary for Crow Wing County District 5.

“I’ve actually been a bit overwhelmed since then,” said Hasskamp via a phone interview on Thursday. “I am just amazed and so grateful that the people made this happen. By doing this, so many people are saying that they want someone to speak up for them and make sure the process is open and transparent.”
