STAPLES—Pete Stauber will speak at 6 p.m. Nov. 9 at Twisted Sister's Restaurant in Staples.

Stauber is running for the U.S. Congress from Minnesota's 8th Congressional District. A Republican, Stauber is seeking the seat now held by Democrat Rick Nolan.

Stauber recently retired from the Duluth Police Department where he served for 23 years, ultimately as a lieutenant and west area commander. He served two terms on the Hermantown City Council and presently is in his second term as St. Louis County commissioner.

Stauber grew up in Duluth, where he and his five brothers graduated from Denfeld High School. He graduated from Lake Superior State University in Sault Ste Marie, Mich., with a degree in criminal justice, where he captained the LSSU hockey team that won the Division I National Championship in 1988.

After playing hockey professionally in the Detroit Red Wings organization, he returned to Duluth to begin his law enforcement career with the Duluth Police Department.

The event will be a dinner meeting, with activities to begin as soon as dinners are ordered and served. To help with planning, reservations would be appreciated. RSVPs may be directed to Diane Carlson at 218-296-1348. People may email dcarlson1899@charter.net to respond.

The event is sponsored by Crossroads Conservatives.
