Serier is running for sheriff in November’s election and Fletcher, a former Ramsey County sheriff, may be running against him. Fletcher’s complaint to St. Paul police came the day after the Ramsey County DFL endorsed Serier. “The political power brokers have had their opportunity to address the integrity issue and they have chosen to ignore it,” Fletcher said. Serier said in a statement Monday that he has “openly and honestly answered residency questions … I was a resident of Ramsey County prior to my appointment to sheriff, and I continue to live in the city of St. Paul.” Fletcher announced last month he would not seek another term as Vadnais Heights mayor.
