This won't come as a shocker but State Representative Jay McNamar of Elbow Lake, the sole DFLer representing parts of Douglas County, had an entirely different view of the just-completed session than his Republican counterparts.


He noted that the session finished on time with a balanced budget that makes critical investments in education, property tax relief and job creation.

McNamar, who represents District 12A, said that the Legislature made great progress for Minnesota.
