Question: Mikki Erickson 712.209.0855
Thank you to the Estherville Police Department for returning 14 of the missing Biden/Harris signs.
In the past week, the Emmet County Democratic Central Committee had distributed approximately 40 Bidden/Harris campaign-yard signs. As of September 15th, 17 had been stolen. If your Biden/Harris sign has gone missing please call the Estherville Police Department at (712) 362-2639.
Most importantly this is not an excuse to retaliate in any way. Stealing other peoples’ stuff is wrong and will not be condoned.
Thank you, Mikki Erickson, ECDCC Treasurer

First, I want to express my gratitude for our conversations over the last week. They were constructive, forward-looking, and showed our resolve to overcome obstacles together.
I cannot express how much I appreciate your patience as we move this process forward.

We will be as transparent as possible throughout this process and provide updates as soon as possible.
Lastly, as we discussed on the calls last night, the IDP is here to serve as a resource for you through this process. In order to do that in the most efficient way, please review this form to address any of your needs as we work together to ensure a smooth process.
