"The job of an elected official is to listen to the concerns and issues of the people and work to address them." DeNucci said in a release. "I will be a visible and active leader that is the conduit bringing changes people want to see to life. I believe I bring the necessary experience, track record, and stewardship to the table in order to serve the people of our area.”

DeNucci is a local businessman and serves on the county's planning commission. He is also involved in numerous other community groups.

Ben DeNucci, 41 and his wife, Kelly, live in Nashwauk where they both graduated from Nashwauk-Keewatin High School.

United Steelworkers Local 2660 has endorsed DeNucci in his bid for County Commissioner. "It was an honor to receive their endorsement," he said. "I have been active in working to advocate for the issues affecting the Steelworkers and felt the endorsement recognized that work...work that is not yet done."

DeNucci previously ran in the 2016 Minnesota State House of Representatives District 6A DFL Primary, eventually losing to Representative Julie Sandstede.

He is running for the spot left open by Mark Mandich, who resigned last week.
