Rep. Leon Lillie


Thank you, neighbors

State Rep. Leon Lillie – District 43B

Neighbors, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of the kind words and well wishes over recent weeks. A special thanks to the North St. Paul EMS and the North St. Paul Fire Department for their assistance after my recent fall.


School shift fully repaid thanks to budget surplus

Minnesota recently received some exciting news about our schools and our economy.
According to a new economic forecast, our state is facing a projected budget surplus of nearly $1.1 billion. This means that we can completely repay the money state lawmakers previously borrowed from our schools, an unpopular gimmick used to balance the state budget that is widely known as the “school shift.”


Looking after our natural resources

As one of the members of Minnesota’s Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources, I have the opportunity to make funding recommendations to the legislature for special environment and natural resource projects that benefit our entire state.


Breaking gridlock

Over the past several years, we’ve gotten a hefty dose of gridlock and grandstanding from politicians in Washington, D.C. – all at the expense of small businesses and middle class families.
Instead of putting aside their differences, lawmakers at our nation’s capitol caused the first federal government shutdown in over 15 years. As a result, hundreds of thousands of people are being hit with unnecessary economic pain and hardship. Workers are not getting paychecks, businesses are losing customers, and children from low-income families are being blocked from their classrooms.
