TOWN OF SHERMAN — Chase Potter will be running for chair in the Town of Sherman in the April 2nd election against incumbent town chair Daniel J. Fedderly.
Potter is originally from a rural community in northern Minnesota.
The Tribune Press Reporter sent out a questionnaire to Potter, and here are his answers:
• What is your occupation? — Business owner and small scale farmer in the Town of Sherman.
• What is your educational background? — Degree in Economics and Global Studies from the University of Minnesota.
• Why did you decide to run for town chair? — I believe integrity, accountability, and fiscal responsibility are just as critical to big government as they are to local government. In pursuit of these goals, I am also a strong advocate for public access and transparency.

In the context of the digital age, I am a dedicated supporter of transparency and public access while understanding the importance of data privacy and discretion with privileged information. I have previously held a government security clearance with the U.S. Department of State.
• What do you hope to accomplish by serving as chair of the Town of Sherman? — Local government should support both residents and small businesses to help create a thriving community while maintaining the rural and agricultural character of the Town of Sherman.
