Clint Faust is running for state representative in Plymouth's 43A, challenging one-term ultraconservative incumbent Sarah Anderson. The Faust family and volunteers assembled this afternoon at Parker's Lake in Plymouth in preparation for door knocking. As state representative, Clint would support measures such as the recently-enacted transportation bill, which the incumbent strongly opposed.
Clint's brother, DFL state representative Tim Faust, represents 8A [a large district which includes Hinckley].
Faust, a financial planner, appears a formidable challenger:
Faust has worked as a church youth director and bible camp counselor. He has also volunteered as a Sunday school teacher, Cub Scout music leader, PTA president, local DFL party leader and youth sports coach.

Sarah Anderson won in 2006 by just 921 votes, or about 5% of the ballots cast. So it looks like an excellent opportunity for Plymouth DFLers.
