Rep. Emmer named to leadership position
Minnesota House Republican Leader Marty Seifert recently appointed Representative Tom Emmer (R-Delano) as deputy minority leader and Representative Denny McNamara (R-Hastings) as minority whip.
“It is an honor to name these two respected representatives to my leadership team,” said House Republican Leader Marty Seifert.
“Their leadership skills, business and legal experience, knowledge of the process and a desire to do what is in the best interests of our state are great assets to the House Republican caucus.”
Emmer represents District 19B in the Minnesota House of Representatives. Emmer’s district includes the cities of Delano, Albertville, Montrose, Rockford, and surrounding townships.
He was first elected in 2004 and has served on the civil law and elections, health policy and finance, and regulated industries committees.
Emmer, an attorney, lives in Delano with his wife Jackie and their seven children.
“In his first term in public office, Representative Emmer proved himself to be a leader. He stood up for principles, he fought for reform and he helped deliver results,” Seifert said.
The House Republican Caucus will elect three assistant minority leaders at its December caucus.
