We received this message in our email last evening conveyed from the DFL Senate District 66 Chair Ryan Lee.
Please see the below message from Representative Alice Hausman of House District 66A:
Dear friends in District 66,
I am sharing the announcement that I will not be running for re-election first with you, my steadfast supporters and partners in this work. There can never be enough words to fully express my thanks for the privilege of representing you. It is having wonderful constituents like you that has bolstered my continuing enthusiasm for this increasingly difficult but rewarding work. Thanks to the many of you who have shared your stories with me over the years. I was fortunate to be able to translate those stories into problem-solving legislative action.
As you know, my most visible work in recent years has been in the area of affordable housing. I owe much of my success to those who shared their heart-breaking stories about the hurdles they or their family or friends faced when trying to find affordable housing. Nothing else in life goes well if you don’t have a safe place to sleep at night.
It is hard to break away from my work in the House of Representatives, knowing there is still so much to be done. I believe, however, that now is the right time. Redistricting is at hand. When we gather in those new districts, we will reconnect with some familiar faces and also meet many new ones. New candidates will emerge. Like you, I will be vetting each to ensure we select the best one, someone who reflects our shared DFL values.
I look forward to continuing to represent you for the coming year. I have taken the opportunity during the interim to downsize and move to Falcon Heights. My new address is 1750 Larpenteur Avenue West, Unit 208. This is a big change for me but, having accomplished it, I look forward to the 2022 session with renewed energy. Please continue telling me those stories.
We at SD66 DFL would like to thank Rep. Hausman for her years of service and for her continued efforts championing DFL values in our house district.
Chair, SD66 DFL
