ST. PAUL – State Rep. Joe McDonald, R-Delano, performed his fifth oath of office in the Minnesota House of Representatives Tuesday as the 91st Legislature was sworn in at the Capitol.
McDonald was re-elected to the House in November and represents District 29A in Wright and Hennepin counties. He has been selected as the lead Republican on the House’s Subcommittee on Local Government, in addition to positions on Taxes, and Property and Local Tax committees.
“It is a humbling honor to continue serving the people of District 29A and I am happy to be back at work in St. Paul, taking on the many issues we face in Minnesota,” McDonald said. “The big responsibility this session is to set a new two-year state budget. We also must find ways to get a grip on health care costs and provide tax relief to Minnesota families and job creators. I have been busy meeting with constituents in preparation for the session and the input that was provided will help me in my efforts to serve as a voice for the people in our area.”
McDonald said constituent outreach remains a top priority during the upcoming session. He welcomes constituents to call his legislative office at (651) 296-4336 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to provide input or set up an appointment. McDonald also sends periodic email updates with the latest information and his personal insight from St. Paul. You can sign up to receive them at www.house.mn/29a.
