Legislative Update-January 3, 2017

Tuesday, January 3, 2017

Hello Everyone,

Today was the first day of session and there was a spirit of bipartisanship as 23 new members were sworn in. It is my hope that this sincerity continues as we work together to move Minnesota forward. I have been honored to serve our communities of Hopkins and St. Louis Park over the past two years and I look forward to the next two. I am ready to get to work!

I am pleased to announce that I will be returning to serve on the House Government Operations & Elections Committee as well as the Property Taxes & Local Government Committee. I have also been assigned to the Transportation & Regional Governance Policy Committee, which is a new committee.

As session progresses, I will be sending out weekly e-mail updates. Please feel free to contact me via e-mail or phone with any questions or concerns. Hearing from you helps me to better represent our community.

Additionally I wanted to send a quick reminder about my first Coffee & Conversation of 2017.  It will take place this Saturday, Jan. 7 from 10:30 a.m. - NOON at the Hopkins Library. Please mark your calendars for the future dates below:
