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.

    Very happy to be at the St. Cloud Hospital to bring my mother home.
    My family is grateful for all the prayers and well wishes. A lot to be thankful for today.
    I know so many people are in similar situations and aren't as fortunate as us. We send our prayers and thoughts to your family as well.

    Message from St. Paul Park Mayor Sandi Schrantz Dingle about storm debris.

    Please share - Due to last night's storm our compost in St. Paul Park will be open during regular business hours over the next couple off days for residents to bring their branches at no charge. Residents may also leave their branches on their boulevards and Public Works will pick them up for you. Be aware and careful of any downed power lines. Please call Excel Energy in those instances and they will take care of it.
