ST. PAUL – Rep. Walter Hudson, R-Albertville, accepted a pair of legislative appointments less than one month into his Minnesota House of Representatives tenure.
Hudson recently accepted posts to serve on both the Council for Minnesotans of African Heritage and the Legislative Energy Commission. He said the latter could prove to be a good venue to advocate for the affordable, reliable energy in Minnesota.
“It’s an honor to accept these appointments and I look forward to lending a strong voice to the important subjects we examine,” Hudson said. “The commission on energy is not only important as we pave our path to the future, but it’s extremely timely today in the wake of House Democrats recently approving a ‘Blackout Bill’ which is unaffordable, unreliable and unsafe.”
The appointments Hudson accepted were issued by House Republican Leader Rep. Lisa Demuth, R-Cold Spring. They last the duration of the new biennium.
Hudson was first elected to represent House District 30A last November and was sworn into office Jan. 3. He succeeds former Rep. Eric Lucero, who now represents the area in the Minnesota Senate.
