SAINT PAUL, MN – Minnesota’s 2013 legislative session officially began Tuesday, with Representative Ron Kresha (R-Little Falls) officially being sworn in for his first term representing District 9B.

“I’m honored to start my first term at the legislature,” Kresha said. “I’m excited to get to work in Saint Paul, and bring the concerns of greater Minnesota to the Capitol. I look forward to working towards a balanced budget that continues to hold spending to a reasonable level.” Kresha will serve on four committees; the Agriculture Policy Committee, the Early Childhood and Youth Development Policy Committee, the State Government Finance and Veterans Affairs Committee, and the Education Policy Committee.

Kresha hopes his assignment to the Education Policy committee will allow him to work toward education reforms to improve Minnesota’s schools, and continue to find cost savings and spending reductions in other areas of the budget. “I believe with the new revenue forecast we will have a chance to address education reform and reduce spending in other nonessential areas.”

Kresha’s office will be the State Office Building, adjacent to the State Capitol in Room 329. “I hope constituents will visit my office if they come to Saint Paul,” Kresha said. “I also welcome constituent feedback and questions about any of the issues going on at the Capitol.” Kresha can be reached by phone at 651-296-4247, or by email at
