Happy New Year!
On Thursday, I was pleased to visit rural Hastings constituent Bill Sorg’s dairy farm in Nininger Township, a location where Governor-elect Walz announced his choices for a number of cabinet positions within his new administration.
Following the announcement, I spoke with our incoming governor for a few minutes and both of us shared a strong desire to set partisanship aside this session and to work together in the best interests of Minnesotans.
This event will surely be a special memory for the Sorg family and their friends, and I’m always glad when a local resident can be honored for their accomplishments. You might recall that in 2009 the Bill and Randy Sorg families were named Dakota County’s “Farm Family of the Year” by the University of Minnesota, so I’m glad they were once again recognized as leaders in agriculture.
In other news, I just wanted to remind everyone about my listening sessions that will be taking place Saturday.
The events will be held at the following times and locations tomorrow, January 5:
- Hastings City Hall, 101 4th St. East, 8:30-9:30 a.m.
- Cottage Grove City Hall, 12800 Ravine Parkway South, 10:00-11:00 a.m.
- Afton City Hall, 3033 St Croix Trail S, 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
Senator Bigham will join me at the Hastings gathering.
I’m holding these listening sessions earlier this year as I wanted to give residents the opportunity to share the topics that are important to them before session begins. I’m hopeful you will take some time Saturday morning to attend the session that best fits your schedule and share your thoughts.
I look forward to seeing you there!
