In an age when many politicians avoid their constituents, we in Senate District 52 are fortunate to have Senator Matt Klein and Representative Rick Hansen, 52A. Many residents had the opportunity on Saturday April 21st to spend two hours listening to what is going on at the Capitol and to ask questions on topics of great interest to them.
The conversation was at times lively, but always respectful, and our representatives answered questions with great candor and passion. They understand that their job is to listen and to represent all of us. We may not always agree, but we can all feel good that with these two public servants, we will always be heard.
There was also an opportunity to meet and hear a bit from Ruth Richardson, who is running to represent those of us from the B side of 52, for MN House. This was a great opportunity for our SD52 community to come together and discuss the issues of the day.
Here are their introductory remarks about current issues at the Capitol
