Johnny Northside blog has a multipart story, on Anoka County Attorney DFL candidate Brad Johnson; this link. Johnson clearly was a candidate at the March 16 DFL Senate District 48 convention. At present he is not running unapposed as DFL candidate for the job. So, the Johnny Northside post is not news, that way.
But for those in Anoka County wanting background - have a look.
Paul Levy, over a year ago, this link, had a background story. There's been recent coverage over the last two weeks or so of the decision of Robert M.A. Johnson to retire from the long-time Anoka County Attorney post he has held after his father's retirement. Another DFL candidate, currently an Assistant Anoka County Attorney with years experience in that role is the second DFL candidate, but I do not have his name available. DFL Senate District 48 officials would have that info.
