State Rep. Kate Knuth has decided to retire from the Legislature after her current term expires. The three-term DFLer from New Brighton was paired with fellow DFL Rep. Tom Tillberry of Fridley in the new redistricting maps that were unveiled last week.
In her tenure in the Legislature, Knuth has been especially active on environment and energy issues.
“I am proud of the work we do together to make Minnesota an exceptional place to live,” Knuth said in a news release. “In particular, I am proud to have worked with local leaders on environmental cleanup and redevelopment needs in my community. I am also glad that Minnesota is on a cleaner, more homegrown energy path because of work we have done over the last few years.”
