MOORHEAD — Paul Krabbenhoft has announced as a candidate for the Clay County Commission from District 1 in the November 2022 election.
A life-long Clay County resident, Krabbenhoft grew up and farmed on the family farm south of Moorhead until 1990, according to a statement released by Krabbenhoft.
Krabbenhoft later moved to south Moorhead and has been a Fargo-Moorhead Realtor for the past 34 years, the statement said.
For about the past 37 years Krabbenhoft has served on the Clay Soil and Water Conservation District Board and he currently serves as the president of Minnesota Association of Soil and Water Conservation Districts.
Over the last 25 years, he has been appointed to multiple committees with Clay County and the city of Moorhead in the areas of planning and zoning, board of adjustments and long-term planning.

The official filing period for the Clay County Commission election begins May 17 and ends May 31.
Three seats are up for grabs in the Nov. 8 election, including the District 3 and District 4 seats, which carry four-year terms and the District 1 seat, which due to redistricting carries a two-year term.
