ALBERT LEA, MN — The legislative sessions may be over for the year but some state leaders are still making the rounds.
An event was held in Albert Lea Saturday to hear the concerns of people in the area. One of the speakers was Minnesota’s GOP Secretary, Chris Fields.
Fields said he is in town to listen to what people have to say about the last session and plans to bring the feedback back to the capitol with him. He said most importantly he wants people to remember that they are not being forgotten in southern Minnesota.
“We want to talk about the things that we’re doing to help people out and also contrast between what folks are seeing up in St. Paul to kind of help them understand the dynamics of what that last legislative session was about,” Fields said.
Fields is a former Marine and also ran for the 5th district U.S. Congress seat against Keith Ellison last year.
