The League of Minnesota Cities (LMC) named Senator Kari Dziedzic (DFL-Minneapolis) a Legislator of Distinction for 2021. The honor recognizes legislators for specific actions that aided efforts of Minnesota cities during this year’s legislative session. Legislators of Distinction are annually approved by the League’s Board of Directors to recognize that in order to successfully serve commonly shared constituents, state and city officials must work together to meet the unique needs of rural, suburban, and urban residents all across Minnesota.
Senator Dziedzic, the only Senate DFLer on the list, was recognized by the League for her “collaboration on issues related to housing, taxes, and economic development.” Furthermore, Senator Dziedzic was praised for being regularly accessible to members of the League of Minnesota Cities and consulting with members on issues.
“Building connections and working together is part of the legislative process and important when crafting any legislation,” said Senator Dziedzic. “It is an honor to represent my district and to work with the LMC on issues important to my constituents and Minnesota cities. I look forward to continuing that relationship and working together to help find solutions to the pressing issues that are affecting my district and the state of Minnesota.”
