About Dave



Dear Friends,

In 2002 I was initially honored to be elected to the Minnesota Senate. Since that time I have strived to represent you with integrity, with dignity and with results. I have demonstrated time again that I am able to work with all Senators regardless of political party or philosophical differences to achieve success on many important initiatives for our area and across Minnesota.

I have never forgotten my sense of servanthood and that my sole purpose in serving is to ensure that you are ably represented and that we move Minnesota forward in a strong and progressive fashion. Know that as a State Senator I will always be there for you ready to listen and ready to act on your behalf. Know also that you will always get my very best. You deserve no less from your senator.

That is my creed that is my personal commitment that is why I enjoy and treasure the opportunity to serve as your State Senator. Please feel free to write, email, text, call, or stop me on the street if you ever have any problems or concerns I might be able to help you with.

Yours with a sense of service,

Senator Dave Senjem
