ST. PAUL — Representative Tim Mahoney (DFL-St. Paul) has announced his plans to retire from the Legislature at the end of this term after 22 years of dedicated service to the state of Minnesota.
A lifelong resident of the Eastside, Tim Mahoney is proud to have represented his community in the Minnesota House of Representatives since first being elected in 1998. In that time he has consistently championed working Minnesotans. Mahoney chairs the House Jobs & Economic Development Finance Committee. Mahoney was the chief author of the nation’s toughest wage theft law that went into effect in August.
“It is time for me to enjoy the next chapter in my life. I can’t thank the people of the Eastside enough for allowing me to represent them at the Capitol for the past two decades. I am looking forward to spending time with my wife, two daughters, three stepsons, and two grandsons.”
Mahoney has been a vocal advocate for the Eastside and a champion for Minnesota’s workers. He has led on a broad variety of issues including the revitalization of the Phalen Corridor, construction of the Bureau of the Criminal Apprehension facility, construction of CHS Field, the redevelopment of the 3M site, a new library at Metropolitan State University, and numerous economic development projects across Minnesota.
