Election season is upon us and while most candidates are campaigning online and taking advantage of social media, Rep. Patti Fritz, DFL-Faribault, is sticking to an old school method.
The Owatonna People's Press says Fritz has been representing areas of Steele and Rice County since 2004 without sending a single tweet or logging on to Facebook. The only website she has is operated by the state. Fritz sticks to doorknocking, answering the phone and attending events to connect with her constituents.
Her opponent in the newly-created District 24B, Dan Kaiser, R-Medford, has a website and uses social media to stay in touch with the people of his district, but no one knows if it's enough to beat Kaiser who's going for a 5th term in office.
