Lt. Gov.-elect Peggy Flanagan promises to uphold tribal rights in listening tour


December 7, 2018

Lieutenant Governor-elect Peggy Flanagan (DFL) used a listening session last week at the Upper Sioux Community Center to reaffirm her incoming administration’s commitment to representing “all Minnesotans,” including rural agricultural areas and the state’s indigenous communities.
