Conservative activist Tammy Houle, of Redwood Falls, filed to run for the Minnesota House of Representatives District 16B seat.

Conservative activist Tammy Houle has filed for the 16B Minnesota House seat currently held by Paul Torkelson. The district covers all of Brown County, most of Redwood County, and a portion of southern Renville County.

Houle, from Redwood Falls, has served as a township officer for 28 years.  She has a record of advocating for conservative causes, including pro-life and gun rights, and against mandated sex education.  Houle, who will be running as a Republican, feels recent events show that Minnesotans deserve leaders who will fight for the Constitutional rights of all.

Houle stated, “Governor Walz’s unconstitutional executive orders have devastated business owners and employees alike. Torkelson has been inept in standing up and fighting for his constituents against left-wing influences”.

The primary is August 11.
