Gerlach retires from Senate, will seek seat on county board
Chris Gerlach thought he was done with politics. Turned out he was wrong.
Earlier this year, citing a desire to spend more time with his family and his business, Gerlach announced his retirement from the Minnesota Legislature after 14 years as a Representative and a Senator.
"It's become a full-time job," he said last week. "It's extraordinarily difficult with a family and a business. Fourteen years is a long time, so it was time to pass that on to somebody else."
