Mayor Will Rossbach announced earlier this spring that he would not be running for re-election. He served on the city council for six years before he was elected mayor in 2009. His decision step down created an opening that former mayor Diana Longrie, former DFL state representative Nora Slawik and resident Fran Grant hope to fill.

Husband, father, police chief, philanthropist, neighbor: Walter Hause was known by all these titles in the North St. Paul community during his years spent serving the city.
For those less familiar with North St. Paul history, Hause was the village’s first uniformed police officer, taking up duty in 1940. He served as the chief of police until 1955, when he suffered a heart attack while on duty.
This year, for the first time, Chief Hause was included in several law enforcement memorials across the state, including the Law Enforcement Memorial Association’s ecumenical service honoring police officers who gave their lives in the line of duty.
