Endorsement!

On Monday, June 22nd, the delegates of our BPOU (Basic Political Organizing Unit) for 38A came together for an endorsing convention. I am happy to announce that I was endorsed by the delegates who came together for this important event.

Being endorsed means that I have the support of the grassroots of our party. Citizens who are concerned about our community and want to make our neighborhoods safe and our schools more effective. Endorsement also means that I have the support of our party and I am able to have access to the resources that I will need to WIN our district for the Republican party.

I want to thank every member of the BPOU who came out to support me, and I look forward to working hard for our community.

DONALD RALEIGH ANNOUNCES CAMPAIGN FOR STATE REPRESENTATIVE

Running to succeed Rep. Linda Runbeck, who has endorsed his candidacy

Blaine, Minn. – Husband of 29 years, father of four, U.S. Army Veteran and small business owner Donald Raleigh today announced his candidacy for State Representative. Raleigh is seeking the District 38A seat in the Minnesota House of Representatives currently held by Republican State Representative Linda Runbeck, who is retiring from the legislature.

“I’m running to bring the leadership skills I’ve gained as a U.S. Army Veteran, small business owner and community volunteer to the capitol,” said Raleigh. “The coronavirus pandemic has changed our world, and government leaders must address the many challenges the virus has caused in areas such as emergency response, economic recovery of our business community, balancing the state budget, health care reform and many more,” Raleigh stated.

The founder and president of a multi-million dollar digital marketing agency, Raleigh served nearly eight years on active duty in the U.S. Army, including serving as a military escort to former President Reagan and as  Military Intelligence Non Commissioned Officer stationed on the former East German border.

In her endorsement of Raleigh, retiring State Representative Linda Runbeck said, “Today, the work at the Capitol requires someone who is younger, tech savvy, solution-oriented and community-connected. I believe that person is Donald Raleigh, a family man, veteran, small business owner, church-goer and servant-leader with the perfect skill set to make an immediate impact for our district.” 

A lifelong Minnesotan, Raleigh was born in St. Paul and has lived in Blaine for 25 years. He received his degree in Emergency and Disaster Management from American Military University of West Virginia and also attended the National Command Staff College at Maxell Air Force Base in Alabama. His four children all graduated from Centennial High School.

Raleigh has served as a Parks Commissioner for the City of Blaine and is a life member of the American Legion, Veterans of Foreign Wars and Disabled American Vets organizations. He is also a DNR Hunter Safety Instructor and long-time volunteer with the U.S. Air Force Auxiliary, Civil Air Patrol. He and his wife attend Eagle Brook Church.
