Slavik wins Dakota County commissioner race to replace Harris
Mike Slavik won the biggest victory of his still young political life Tuesday night. And he was excited.
"I'm just very excited to begin," said Slavik, who beat Farmington city council member Christy Jo Fogarty for the Dakota County Commissioner seat in District 1.
Joe Harris is retiring from the county commission this year after 32 years of elected service.
"I want to thank everyone - it has been a long campaign," Slavik said. "I'm feeling very good."
