Our guest Wednesday on “Open Line” is a former Thief River Falls resident who now works in Washington, DC. Rebekah Solem is Congressman Collin Peterson’s Senior Policy Advisor and is a graduate of the Thief River Falls School District. Solem began her studies at Carleton College in 2002, where she earned a degree in Political Science and International Studies. After graduation, she spent two years teaching English in Japan as part of the Japan Exchange and Teaching program. This interview with News Director, Grant Nelson, was previously recorded just after the election. We’d like to thank Solem for her time as she was still hard at work for Congressman Peterson, helping do the business of the people. Here now is that interview.
