House DFL Leaders thank Lieutenant Governor Yvonne Prettner Solon for her career in public service

Statement from Speaker Paul Thissen:

“For more than two decades, Lieutenant Governor Yvonne Prettner Solon has answered the call of public service.

Throughout her distinguished career, she earned the respect of legislators across the aisle and built a record of accomplishments based on her clear commitment to the public good. I always appreciated her sense of humor and will miss working with her at the State Capitol.

Minnesota is a better place due to Yvonne’s work on issues like renewable energy, health care and support for our seniors.”  

Statement from House Majority Leader Erin Murphy:

“I am grateful for Lieutenant Governor Prettner Solon’s leadership on behalf of our seniors, energy issues, and her community over a distinguished career in public service.

I had the pleasure of working with Yvonne on health care issues when she served in the Minnesota Senate. She is not someone who sought out the limelight for herself, but rather focused her attention on helping others through sound public policy.

Yvonne’s selfless dedication to public service will be missed here at the State Capitol and I wish her well on her next endeavor.”
