Why I’m Running
John Huot is proud to represent the communities of Rosemount, Apple Valley and Coates in the Minnesota House of Representatives, District 57B
My life has been dedicated to service. From the emergency department at the old St. Paul Ramsey Medical Center to working with a local fire department and transporting critically ill patients in the ambulance, my career has reflected my commitment to serving people, often at their worst times. It was this dedication to service that first drew me to the idea of running for office.
As my work progressed and my family grew, I never lost interest in running for office, but I had other things that needed my attention. My wife and I raised our family of three boys. We moved to Rosemount to ensure our kids would receive a top-notch education. I spent time volunteering in my community as a youth sports coach, a youth faith formation teacher, and a local advisory council. I worked hard in my healthcare field, I started small businesses, and I developed a successful real estate career, in which I still work today. Like so many of us, I have experienced the ups and downs, the challenges, and the joys, of working and raising a family.
In 2018 I put my experience and knowledge to work for the people of our district. My experiences at the Minnesota Legislature as a freshman Representative reaffirmed my belief that our state government needs people like me in office to fight for what is important to the residents of our community. I understand the challenges so many of us are facing because I have lived them.
Let’s get the work done!
