Court says Westrom a Senate District 12 resident
By Reed Anfinson
Republican state Senator Torrey Westrom is a resident of the new Senate District 12 and can remain on the Nov. 8 ballot, Minnesota Court of Appeals Judge Diane B. Bratvold wrote in her summary of her ruling issued Aug. 30.
“I’m grateful that after a two-day trial, the conclusion matches what we’ve said from the beginning, that we moved last May and I had properly changed residency before May 8, 2022, and we do indeed live in Senate District 12 and meet the residency requirement for the election,” Westrom said in a statement last Wednesday morning.
