RETIRING REP. MARK UGLEM ENDORSES BILL MARESH FOR HOUSE
CHAMPLIN, MN—Retiring Rep. Mark Uglem, R-Champlin, announced today his endorsement of Bill Maresh, a longtime Champlin Park teacher and wrestling coach, for Minnesota House for District 36A. Uglem has served the district, which is comprised of Champlin and parts of Coon Rapids, since 2013 and announced his retirement earlier this year. Prior to his legislative service, Uglem served as Mayor of Champlin for six years.
"Bill Maresh has my full support to be the next state representative for Champlin and Coon Rapids," Uglem said. "Bill is one of us—he's a longtime Champlin resident, a teacher, a dad, and a coach. He has served the community in the classroom for more than 25 years, and now I hope you'll join me in supporting him as he looks to serve as our next state representative. Bill shares our community's values and will fight at the legislature to lower health care costs, reduce taxes on middle-class families, and use his experience as a teacher to strengthen our schools."
"Mark Uglem has been a champion for our community, and has made our area a better place to live through his service as a Mayor and State Representative," Maresh said. "It's an honor to have his endorsement, and I will work every day to build on his work on behalf of families in Champlin and Coon Rapids as your next state representative." Maresh has worked as a teacher at Champlin Park High School for 25 years, and has been the head wrestling coach since 1993. He will face DFLer Zach Stephenson in the general election this November.
