"Give me liberty or give me death" -Patrick Henry


It has been a privilege and a treat being on city council. I put my heart and soul into it and I hope you have appreciated the job I have done, the seriousness I take to the job, and the care I put into it. I hope I have earned your trust and will continue to keep your trust over the next 4 years. 
I want to go over what we have done together the last 4 years, the values I have today, and what I hope we can do together in the future.

Held tax rates the same or lower each year
Tirelessly advocated for personal liberty
Stood up for Corcoran against the county, the met council, and other governments 
Stood up for Corcoran’s way of life
Strived to allow freedom to sell your land, while maintaining high quality housing standards
Prevented the solar farm industry from deceiving our towns into taking on their business risk


I love Corcoran. I value it and all our residents 
I trust people over politicians and governments
We have a lot to be proud of in our town, I’m not running to change it 
I work really hard. I grew up on a farm - I still get my hands dirty 
I put enormous amounts of research into every thing I do

I will continue giving 100% to my council job
I will continue to return every call and email
We must work to keep Corcoran rural while allowing people the freedom to sell their land
We need to have our city government be effective and efficient 
Feel free to call or email me: 612-247-7328, Bottemaforcorcoran@gmail.com

I look forward to hearing from you.
