Next Election in:

Patty is running for reelection to the Hibbing City Council in Ward B. She was first elected in 1994. Patty takes her service seriously and attended city council meetings for a year and a half before vying for a seat two decades ago.  Her long-time priorities include economic development, infrastructure, and housing.  Each of these priorities boil down to one goal:  ensuring that Hibbing remains the hub of the range.  This isn’t just talk where Patty’s concerned--she has the business experience to back it up.  Patty and her sister co-founded The Mulberry Gift Shop, a local small business, in the early 1990s.  Patty wants to fix any and all problems folks may be having in her community.  Patty Shafer has a reputation as a public advocate and feels accomplished when she’s helped even “just one person a day.”
