Davids gets nod from coalition

Rep. Greg Davids was recognized by the Coalition of Greater Minnesota Cities (CGMC) July 25 during the Coalition’s three-day summer conference in Bemidji for his positive impact on economic development policy.

Rep. Davids, a Republican from Preston, is serving his tenth term in the Minnesota House. The Legislator of Distinction Award is given to legislators who played key roles in advancing CGMC’s policy during the preceding session.

Rep. Davids was the only Republican legislator to sign on as a co-author to every CGMC/Greater Minnesota Economic Development Partnership bill. As a former Tax Committee chair, his leadership helped establish bipartisan credibility that these proposals would provide economic development opportunities for Greater Minnesota.

“Rep. Davids has long been a friend of the CGMC and has always worked hard for his constituents and Greater Minnesota,” said Bruce Ahlgren, president of the CGMC and mayor of Cloquet.  “This past session was no exception.”
