Meet the Candidates: Erika Bailey-Johnson for MN House 2B

Erika Bailey-Johnson is the Sustainability Director for Bemidji State University. She is also a Red Lake Band member and grew up in northern Minnesota.

Rather than expand mining for precious metals, for instance, the types that are needed to shift away from fossil fuels for electric vehicles, Bailey-Johnson believes work can be done to recapture those precious elements in the devices we frequently need to replace.

Bailey-Johnson is running to have an impact on our state and hopes to bridge some of the partisan divides synonymous with the state government.
