NEW House District Number!
The Special Minnesota Supreme Court Judicial Panel delivered its decision about Redistricting. Most of what used to be District 38A is now District 51A. A few changes are evident from the new map: The eastern border of the district is now Highway 35E. The northern border remains unchanged. In the southern side there are a few changes: a "jog" into the district south of Blackhawk near 35E, and of course on the western end a number of precincts from Burnsville were added to the District! Welcome Neighbors!!!
The district now extends all the way to the Dakota/Scott County border, just before Savage.
I am looking forward to visiting with you and meeting you and discussing with all of you the issues that touch your lives and livelihoods.
The change comes about in order to make House Districts more or less equal in size, and the Judges on the Panel tried to keep the nature of our community the same as before. So as a community we remain much the same.
My sincere and heart-felt gratitude goes to all of you were active and worked hard to make our "old" District 38A a great place to live and work.
