ST. PAUL — State Sen. Justin Eichorn, R-Grand Rapids, once again took the oath of office as a Minnesota state senator when the Legislature convened for the 2023-24 session Tuesday, Jan. 3.

Eichorn is serving his third term.

“I am excited to begin a new year in the Senate Representing the wonderful folks of Senate District 6,” Eichorn stated in a news release. “I am grateful for the trust that has been placed in me and, as I always have, I will work my hardest every day to earn it.

“I am always looking to work across the aisle to get things done, but accountability will be especially important this session. Democrats control the House, Senate, and Governor’s Office — we must ensure they are putting the best interests of all Minnesotans first, not just their base. I am eager to get to work.”

Eichorn encouraged constituents to ask questions, provide feedback and offer ideas, the news release stated. He can be reached at his Capitol office at 2235 Minnesota Senate Building, 95 University Ave., St. Paul; by email at ; or by phone at 651-296-7079.

He is the Republican lead on the Environment, Climate, and Legacy Committee, and will serve as a member of the committees on Finance and Rules and Administration.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.

Hi, I'm the Brainerd Dispatch. I started working a few days before Christmas in 1881 and became a daily paper two years later. I've gone through a lot of changes over the years, but what has never changed is my commitment to community and to local journalism. I've got an entire team of dedicated people who work night and day to make sure I go out every morning, whether in print, as an e-edition, via an app or with additional information at News, weather, sports — videos, photos, podcasts and social media — all covering stories from central Minnesota about your neighbors, your lakes, your communities, your challenges and your opportunities. It's all part of the effort to keep people connected and informed. And we couldn't do it without support.
