Keith Franke Sworn-In to Second Term as State Representative

SAINT PAUL, MN – Representative Keith Franke, R-St. Paul Park, was sworn-in on Tuesday to his second (non-consecutive) term in office as the 2021 legislative session begins. Franke returns to the House Chamber to represent district 54A after previously serving from 2017-2018. District 54A includes portions of Cottage Grove, Newport, South St. Paul, St. Paul Park, and Grey Cloud Island Township.

“I am thrilled to be back in Saint Paul representing my neighbors in District 54A,” said Representative Franke. “As a small business owner, I am eager to work with my colleagues to help our great Minnesota businesses through this economic crisis so they can safely reopen and bring back jobs.

“Perhaps even more critical to our state’s long-term future, is the mental health impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. I am honored to be the Republican lead on the Behavioral Health Policy Division. The wellbeing of all Minnesotans is very important to me, and I look forward to tackling mental health and addiction issues in this role.”

Besides leading Behavioral Health Policy Division, Franke will also be serving on the Capital Investment and Workforce and Business Development Finance & Policy committees this session.
