SAINT PAUL, Minn. – Following a successful first session in the Minnesota House, the League of Minnesota Cities (LMC) and Minnesota School Boards Association (MSBA) have recognized Rep. Kelly Moller (DFL – Shoreview) as a “Legislator of Distinction.” Each organization noted Rep. Moller’s accessibility, partnership, and advocacy in achieving mutual goals at the State Capitol.
“I’ve worked hard to develop good working relationships with the cities and school districts I represent, and it’s an honor to receive these awards from the LMC and MSBA,” Rep. Moller said. “For us to make progress in Saint Paul on issues that matter to our communities, it takes strong collaboration with partners at the local level. I thank them for the recognition and look forward to building upon our shared success in the future.”
In presenting her with their “Legislator of Distinction” award, LMC staff cited Rep. Moller’s efforts to work collaboratively on legislation regarding sexual harassment and for regularly seeking out city concerns.
