We thank him for his continued efforts.”

“During my time in the legislature, I’ve worked to help our residents have affordable access to the energy they need on a daily basis,” said Baker. “I’m proud to accept this award, and thank the Coalition for a Secure Energy Future for their work in continuing to meet the energy needs of Minnesotans.”
