Flanagan sworn in as newest Minnesota lawmaker
Peggy Flanagan joined the Minnesota House of Representatives Monday in a swearing in ceremony overlooking the state Capitol.
Flanagan, who ran unopposed to succeed former Rep. Ryan Winkler in District 46A, took her oath of office before several dozen observers including Lt. Gov. Tina Smith and House Speaker Kurt Daudt.
In her speech, the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party lawmaker spoke of getting involved in politics working on Sen. Paul Wellstone’s campaign, and later work fighting to raise Minnesota’s minimum wage.
