ST. PAUL — On Tuesday, Jan. 3, state Sen. Nathan Wesenberg, R-Little Falls, was sworn in for his first term in the Minnesota State Senate.

“I’m honored to be sworn in to represent the great people of District 10, and I’m ready to get to work,” Wesenberg stated in a news release. “The voice of the people matters. I’ve spoken with families, friends, and neighbors across the district — they want their taxes cut, they want to preserve their Second Amendment rights, and to know their children are protected. It’s time for legislators to listen to the people of Minnesota, and I intend on doing that as I fight for the protection of our freedoms.”

Wesenberg will serve on the Education Policy, Labor, and Environment, Climate, and Legacy committees.

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.
