Spending time in St. Paul is not something new to Councilwoman Karen Foreman. She has regularly spent two to three days a month in St. Paul for the past 10 years.
She attended and spoke at the Minnesota State Colleges and University System Board of Trustees meeting, advocated with legislators for funding for higher education and has testified before committees.
She makes a deliberate effort to listen to constituents. She has held over 35 regular monthly listening sessions since January of 2011. She listens to constituents, is familiar with the process in St. Paul and will be an asset in the Legislature.
