Friends and family gathered at a barbeque on Father’s Day to wish Ramsey County Commissioner Toni Carter (District 4) a happy birthday and to begin fundraising for her reelection campaign.
Rory Koch, Legislative Assistant to State Rep. Joyce Peppin (R-32A), has recently filed to challenge Commissioner Carter for her seat in the November 2nd elections.
In attendance at the barbeque were Lt. Gov. candidate Robyn Robinson, former FOX 9 news anchor; DFL-endorsed candidate for MN House of Representatives District 65A, Jeremiah Ellis; and Commissioner Carter’s son, St. Paul City Councilmember Melvin Carter III (Ward 1). “People often ask me if seeing my mother achieve so many great things has inspired me, that I could do the same. But in fact, it had quite the opposite effect. [Working so close with her] has made me realize that I could never do all of the things she has done,” Councilmember Carter said.
