Veteran Rep. Greiling Won’t Run Again In Minn.

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Democratic state Rep. Mindy Greiling says Minnesota Legislature’s 2012 session will be her last.

The 10-term lawmaker announced Wednesday that she won’t seek re-election in the fall. She first came to the Legislature in 1993 and became one of the Capitol’s lead voices on education.

Greiling, of Roseville, served as chairwoman of the House Education Finance Committee when Democrats were in the majority.

November’s election will decide who serves in all 134 House and 67 Senate seats. Republicans currently control both chambers by narrow margins.

    Thank you for your service, Rep. Greiling. It’s a tough job, and we should have great respect for those of you willing to serve.

    A hard working legislator is hanging it up. A career working with education and for the medically disadvantaged and their families. A person of character, there would never be an ethics complaint against her. There will be a large hole to fill at the legislature.
