Autumn Lehrke to challenge Myra Peterson for board seat
Cottage Grove resident Autumn Lehrke has filed to challenge Myra Peterson for her seat on the Washington County Board this fall.
Lerhke, a 28-year-old store manager of a SuperAmerica gas station in Maplewood, said "irresponsible spending" pushed her to join the race for the District 4 seat.
"They're talking about increasing property taxes because the values of homes have decreased," she said. "I don't think that increasing taxes is the solution, we have to cut spending."
