WILLMAR — State Rep. Dave Baker, R-Willmar, has been elected to a leadership position in the Republican Caucus.

For the 2023-2024 legislative sessions, Baker will serve as the Assistant Minority Leader for the House Republican Caucus. He was elected by fellow members of the caucus.

"I am honored by the trust and confidence my colleagues have placed in me to serve on our leadership team,” Baker said in a news release Thursday. “Looking forward, I plan to work hard on constructive solutions to the problems facing Minnesotans, their families and our communities.”

Baker will also be serving as the Republican lead on the Workforce Development Finance Committee. He was appointed to this role by House Minority Leader Lisa Demuth, R-Cold Spring.
