St. Paul, Minn.- Yesterday was the opening day of the 2019 legislative session, Rep. Cheryl Youakim (DFL – Hopkins) took the oath of office to represent District 46B for a third term in the Minnesota House of Representatives.

“Minnesotans care deeply about our state and we want to see one another succeed,” said Rep.

It is our job to come together to get things done.”

Late last month, Rep.
