Rep. Dehn calls for Becker legislator to apologize for 'offensive' North Minneapolis comment


Rep. Raymond Dehn (DFL-59B), who represents neighborhoods downtown and in North Minneapolis, has called on Rep. Jim Newberger to publicly apologize for comments about North Minneapolis during a discussion Tuesday about the North Star commuter line.

Newberger, a Republican from Becker, said: “Boy, wouldn’t that be convenient to have that rail line going from the prison (in St. Cloud) to North Minneapolis.”
