ST. PAUL, MN – State Rep. Lyndon Carlson took the oath of office on Tuesday for another term as State Representative from District 45B.
Rep. Carlson, who served as Chair of the Finance Committee under the DFL majority, has been named DFL Lead on the Ways and Means Committee. He will also serve on the Capital Investment and Education Reform Committees.
“My committee appointments represent our top priorities this year – jobs, education and a balanced budget," said Carlson. “Even though I am no longer in the majority, I will work with my colleagues across the aisles on a budget solution that does not harm our schools, seniors or middle-class families.
Carlson, a retired school teacher, has represented the residents of Crystal, Robbinsdale and Golden Valley since 1972. He has been a leader on education issues, and as Chair of the Finance Committee, helped craft responsible balanced budget each of the last four years.
“It is an honor and a privilege to represent the people of District 45B,” said Carlson. “As always, I encourage you to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have.”
Rep. Carlson can be reached at 651-296-4255, by email at email@example.com or by mail at 283 State Office Building, St. Paul, MN 55155m
