Five-term member Albright to resign from House

Featured Image

Rep. Tony Albright (R-Prior Lake) is resigning from the House effective Friday.

“It has been an honor and privilege of a lifetime to serve Prior Lake, Jordan, and surrounding townships in House District 55B for the last ten years," he wrote in an Aug. 2 letter to House leaders. "I have been blessed beyond measure.” No reason for his departure was given.

By statute, Albright's resignation will not trigger a special election. He was not seeking re-election.

The 2022 session was Albright’s 10th in the House. He served as the lead Republican on the House Human Services and Finance and Policy Committee, and was a member of the House Higher Education Finance and Policy and House Ways and Means committees.
