ST. PAUL – State Rep. Dean Urdahl, R-Acton Township, performed his 10th oath of office in the Minnesota House of Representatives Tuesday as the 92nd Legislature was installed at the Capitol.
Urdahl was re-elected to the House in November. He represents District 18A, encompassing all of Meeker County and portions of McLeod and Wright. He recently was selected to remain the lead Republican on the House Capital Investment Division, in addition to continuing posts with the Education Policy and Legacy committees.
“It is good to be back in the House as we face challenging times and a challenging session,” Urdahl said. “I look forward to continuing doing my best to represent the people of District 18A and enter the session optimistic the Legislature can accomplish what is needed to meet the needs of Minnesotans.”
Urdahl said he encourages local citizens in District 18A to contact his legislative office this session by calling (651) 296-4344 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. He also provides periodic email updates and citizens can sign up to receive them at his official state website: www.house.mn/18a.
As a COVID-19 precaution, Tuesday’s swearing-in ceremony was conducted with many House members participating remotely from their legislative offices instead of in the chamber as is tradition.
