ALBERT LEA, MN — A local change in leadership is driving some folks to act.

Dan Dorman, who was the former executive director for the Albert Lea Economic Development Agency (ALEDA), is now part of an economic development group for the Coalition of Greater Minnesota Cities.

Although new leadership is in place, some residents are looking to see more changes.

A petition is cycling to bring the ALEDA back under the city’s jurisdiction.

“The ultimate goal of this petition is to have discussion on it and see if it’s actually working to the benefit of the citizens of Albert Lea,” said John Severtson, one of the petitioners.

They will be collecting signatures for 60 days before presenting it to the council in October.

Severtson is a former city council member and another petitioner is the former mayor.
