The local area’s newest State Representative was sworn in this (TUE) morning. Democrat Clark Johnson will serve District 19-A, which covers all of Nicollet County and parts of Blue Earth and Le Sueur Counties. Johnson says that he’s ready to get to work in St. Paul. Johnson will serve on the Ag Policy, Transportation Finance, Health and Human Service Policy, and the Environment and Natural Resource Policy committees. He replaces St. Peter Democrat Terry Morrow following a special election for the seat last week.
