ST. PAUL - Sen. Carrie Ruud, R-Breezy Point, has been recognized as a Legislator of Distinction by the League of Minnesota Cities for her leadership in supporting city-friendly legislation. Specifically Sen. Ruud chief authored legislation which granted permanent authority for cities to remove snow from streets in uncompleted subdivisions.

Legislators of Distinction are annually approved by the League's Board of Directors to recognize that in order to successfully serve commonly shared constituents, state and city officials must work together to meet the unique needs of rural, suburban, and urban residents all across Minnesota.

"I'm honored to receive this recognition from the League of Minnesota Cities." said Ruud. "As a former Mayor I understand the importance of local officials working together with their state level elected officials. The snow removal legislation is a great example of local leaders identifying an issue and bringing it to the attention of the legislature for action. I'm very happy we were able to permanently resolve this issue."
