New Lt. Gov. Peggy Flanagan gavels in the Minnesota Senate on Jan. 8, heralding the start of the 2019 legislative session. Flanagan, 39, is a citizen of the White Earth Nation of Ojibwe who served in the Minnesota House from 2015 to 2018. She told reporters last week that she plans to reshape the office of the lieutenant governor by building on the template established by former Gov. Mark Dayton and former Lt. Gov. Tina Smith. With Gov. Tim Walz at her side Monday, she described herself as the new governor’s “top adviser.” She has already had an impact, playing a key role in the selection of all the new agency commissioners during the transition.
