Senator Matt Little was elected to the Minnesota Senate in 2016. He represents Senate District 58, which covers Lakeville, Farmington, a small slice of Northfield and more than a dozen townships and small communities including Empire, Vermillion, New Trier and Douglas.

Matt and his fiancé Coco live in Lakeville, where he was elected Mayor in 2012. He graduated from Parkview Elementary, Rosemount High School, University of Minnesota-Morris, and earned his law degree from the University of Minnesota.After graduating from law school, Matt worked at Sieben Edmunds before opening his own firm in downtown Lakeville called Little Law.

Under his leadership as Mayor, Lakeville has seen an outstanding 9.4 percent job growth, and has led the state in single family home development. Upon being elected, Matt set about creating attractive job growth packages for major businesses looking to expand or move to Lakeville.

Prior to his election as Mayor, Matt was elected to the City Council in 2010. He served on a variety of committees and boards including the Downtown Lakeville Business Association, Public Safety Committee, Municipal Legislative Coalition, and the Economic Development Commission. Throughout his time as Mayor Matt focused on keeping taxes low, public safety, job growth, and reducing long-term debt.

On his approach to work in the Minnesota Senate, Matt says, “I’ve always been a pragmatic policy maker. It’s not about party or labels, it’s about solving problems that matter to people and families.”

When he’s not working, Matt likes to spend time with his fiancé Coco, his family and friends. He enjoys running, reading, basketball, and fishing.
