Senator Dan Schoen
Senator Dan Schoen represents District 54 in the southeast Twin Cities metro. He was elected to the Minnesota Senate in 2016 after serving two terms in the House of Representatives.
Dan has two children and lives in Saint Paul Park. He serves on the Board of Directors for the St. Paul Park/Newport Lions Club. Dan graduated from MACCRAY High School and earned his Criminal Justice degree from Ridgewater College in Willmar. After graduating he worked in Willmar for five years as a Paramedic. He was the founding President of the International Association of Firefighters Local 3943 and is a current member of the Minnesota Police & Peace Officers Association and The Fraternal Order of Police.
As a legislator, Dan was a proud supporter of the Women’s Economic Security Act, which promotes equal pay for equal work, enhances protections for victims of domestic violence, strengthens workplace protections for women — including pregnant women and new mothers — and helps women learn skills in high-wage jobs where women are underrepresented. Dan also voted to make historic investments in education, including a tuition freeze at Minnesota state colleges and universities to help Minnesota students pay for college.
