State Rep. Corey Mock to seek seat in District 18

Grand Forks Herald

State Rep. Corey Mock is running for re-election—though he’s not seeking his current seat.

Mock, a Democrat who represents Grand Forks’ District 42, which includes UND, has moved to a new home since his last election and into District 18, which includes the downtown area and the northern end of the city.

Two House seats are open in the district since Democrats Marie Strinden and Eliot Glassheim announced they would run not for re-election.

“While this campaign will feature my fight for ethics and voting reform, investments in communities and diverse economic growth, it’s about something larger than any one person,” Mock said in a statement. “Our team will spend the next nine months, and hopefully the following four years, preserving the legacy of those who built North Dakota’s foundation while providing a vision for our future.”

Mock’s statement also praised Glassheim’s contributions to Grand Forks and the state.

“Eliot has served his neighbors on the Grand Forks City Council and in the North Dakota House of Representatives over the last two generations,” Mock’s statement said. “We’re undoubtedly stronger because of his public service.”

Glassheim has been in the House since 1993.
