Dear Friends, Supporters and news media,

It has been my honor to serve in the Minnesota House of
Representatives since 2017. Thank you for supporting me as your Representative
for MN House District 9A.

Last fall (Sept, 2021); I announced that I would not be
running for the House again; but I was planning to run for the Minnesota Senate
in District 9.

The new district maps were announced last week. After prayer, discussion with my family, and
council with my fellow Republican lawmakers, I have made the decision to retire
at the end of my House term.

The new map for Senate District 5 includes portions of
Becker, Cass, Hubbard, Todd, and Wadena counties. Paul Utke (Republican)
resides in Park Rapids. He has been serving in the Minnesota Senate since
2017.

I am confident in Paul’s commitment to all Minnesotans.
He will continue to advocate for tax reform, health care reform, and our 2nd
Amendment rights.

I will finish my House of Representatives position with
pride.

I will continue to stand on the core principles that I
have campaigned for the past 3 terms.

I will continue to make your voice heard at the State
Capital.

Thank you for giving me this opportunity to represent
you.

I am a proud Republican.

I am a proud Minnesotan.

John Poston
