Teacher Fietek launches Minn. House campaign

April 18, 2014

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A teacher who spoke out for gay students during a bullying debate in the state's largest school district says he's running for a state House seat.

Jefferson Fietek will challenge Rep. Mark Uglem, a Champlin Republican, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reported (http://bit.ly/1lglyS9 ).

Fietek advocated for gay students in 2010 when the Anoka-Hennepin school district struggled with several student suicides and federal lawsuits from students who said they were bullied over real or perceived sexual orientation.
