Sherrie PughCongratulations to Sherrie Pugh on her appointment by Governor Dayton! Sherrie has the honor of being one of only 8 DFL appointees statewide to the Legislative Salary Council. Thanks, Sherrie, for your commitment to public service; we are proud you are part of the SD 33 family!!!

From the Star Tribune, “Gov. Mark Dayton and state Supreme Court Chief Justice Lorie Skjerven Gildea … named the members of the newly created Legislative Salary Council, which is tasked with determining the salaries of state lawmakers.

On Election Day, 76 percent of voters supported a constitutional amendment that removes legislators’ ability to set their own pay and created a new citizen panel to sort out the salaries.

Dayton and Gildea each selected eight members comprising an equal number of DFLers and Republicans and coming from each Congressional District.

‘They are all very distinguished citizens, who represent well the political and geographical diversity of Minnesota,’ Dayton said in a statement.”
