Minnesota Lt. Gov. Yvonne Prettner Solon has been named to the executive committee of the National Lieutenant Governors Association (NLGA).
A news release today from Gov. Mark Dayton’s office said Prettner Solon will serve as the at-large member from the Midwest.
“It is an honor to be named to a leadership position,” Prettner Solon said. “The challenges facing Minnesota are also facing state governments across the country. I am confident that the ideas shared and partnerships forged between us will result in real, tangible benefits to the people we serve.”
NLGA Chair Nebraska Lt. Gov. Rick Sheehy, the NLGA chair, said Prettner Solon will work with her peers across the nation to find and foster multi-state and regional solutions to problems.
