Senate DFL Leader López Franzen applauds Senator Chuck Wiger for his years of public service and leadership

Senator Chuck Wiger (DFL-Maplewood) announced today that he would not be seeking another term in 2022. In response, DFL Senator Melisa López Franzen issued the following statement:

“Few legislators have given as much to the people of their district and of our state than Senator Chuck Wiger. Throughout his tenure at the Senate, he has been a leader in making sure our students receive a world-class education, protecting our environment, and investing in the people of Minnesota.

“After five decades of public service, from school board member to state senator, I wish Senator Wiger well in his upcoming retirement. He has been a great mentor for me and so many other members of the legislature. While he will be missed at the Senate, I know that he will continue to be a strong fighter for our kids and all Minnesotans in the 2022 Legislative Session.”
