Dotseth returns to Capitol for new session

Monday, February 12, 2024


ST. PAUL – Minnesota’s 2024 legislative session began Monday and Rep. Jeff Dotseth, Silver Township, said it’s good to be back at the Capitol working for District 11A residents with crucial issues on tap for the coming months.

“The people in our district deserve to have a state representative that puts constituents above all else and that has been my top priority since the day I swore the oath of office, without a doubt,” Dotseth said. “If it’s something that will help people in our district, I’ll support it. If it’s going to be bad news for my friends and neighbors, then I’ll oppose it. It’s strange you even have to say those words, but we see it all the time at the Capitol these days – particularly where legislators from Greater Minnesota jump on board with the Twin Cities metro agenda at the expense of their constituents. The next thing you know Democrats are raising taxes by $10 billion despite a $17.5 billion surplus or dealing another blow to mining.

“I’m at the Capitol to advance what’s good for the people in District 11A – end of story. I spent the legislative interim crisscrossing our district to remain firmly in touch with local residents, to hear what’s on their mind, and enter the 2024 session with my sleeves rolled up and ready to get to work advocating for our best interests. That’s what the start of this session means to me.”

Dotseth said he welcomes correspondence throughout the session and encourages District 11A residents to call (651) 296-4308 or email to get in touch.
