SAINT PAUL, MN—Representative Cindy Pugh, R-Chanhassen, was officially sworn-in Tuesday as the legislature began the 2017 session in St. Paul. Legislators took the oath of office administered by Chief Justice of the Minnesota Supreme Court Lorie Gildea in the House Chamber. Pugh will continue representing District 33B which includes the cities of Chanhassen, Shorewood, Deephaven, Greenwood, Excelsior, Tonka Bay, Orono, Minnetonka Beach, Spring Park, and Mound.
"I am grateful to have been re-elected to serve my third term in the Minnesota House of Representatives and to representing the interests of my wonderful constituents,” Pugh said. "My top priority will be to work collaboratively to address the crisis of skyrocketing health insurance premiums and deductibles, which many of my constituents are experiencing as a result of the collapse of the individual insurance market in Minnesota. I'm also looking forward to working with my colleagues to make smart investments in our roads and bridges and to bringing much needed tax relief to hardworking Minnesotans.”
Pugh, who was first elected in 2012, was named Vice Chair of the Government Operations and Elections Committee. She will also serve on the State Government Finance, the Rules & Legislative Administration, and Civil Law & Data Practices Committees.
Pugh and her husband Jack have lived in Chanhassen for almost 30 years and have two adult children.
