Civic beat: Pogemiller leaving

Pogemiller leaving Legislature for higher ed post

State Sen. Larry Pogemiller, the longtime lawmaker from Northeast Minneapolis and former Senate majority leader, is stepping down after 31 years to take a job in Gov. Mark Dayton’s administration.

Pogemiller will take over as director of the Minnesota Office of Higher Education. That office provides students with financial aid programs and post-secondary information, and administers $150 million in need-based grants to Minnesota residents attending Minnesota institutions.
