Per the results of the election last November, you are no longer a State Representative - please change the name of your page.

Happy birthday to Lillian! Please change your name to reflect your new title.

Happy birthday Lillian

Happy Birthdsy, Lillian!

Happy Birthday, Lillian!!🎉🎂

You needed to change the name of this page when your term ended. I believe this has been reported to FB. Might as well get ahead of the curve and make the change.

Happy birthday to her. You are no longer a state representative. You need to change this page name. It is misleading.

Just your friendly reminder to please update your name to reflect *former*. I’m glad it’s getting warm enough to start golfing again!

Miss you.

The Bison are like Trump. They win so much they get tired of winning! Go herd!

Today my 2nd term as the State Representative for Maple Grove and Osseo will conclude. It has been an honor to represent you in St. Paul for the past 4 years.

A heartfelt thanks for your continued support during my tenure and through my campaigns.

I am proud of my record setting 34 bills signed by Gov. Dayton, including;
• Real ID (HF3) – making air travel easier for all Minnesotans,
• American with Disabilities Act (HF 1542) – increasing access for disabled persons and removing needless legal barriers for small business owners,
• Notarial Act (HF 1609) – effective this week, simplifies the notary process and allows a consumer-friendly remote notary option,
• Home Ownership Bill (HF 1538) – expands home ownership opportunities for middle income Minnesotans,
• Brockton and Highway 610 Exchange Bill (HF 3800) – added freeway lanes and created a new exit on I-94 to make our growing suburb more transportation friendly, and
• Maple Grove Tax Incremental Financing Bill (HF 732) – offers the city of Maple Grove more financial flexibility to continue its vibrant and smart growth.

I carry with me an optimism in Minnesota’s politics and legislative process and look forward to the many possibilities for my future in these arenas.

Thank you again and I look forward to seeing you around town!

So sad to see this result. Best to you and your family in your new endeavors.

This is the kind of class we desperately need in both American politics and our society at large. Thank you, and best wishes to you with whatever comes next in your career.

Thank you for your service, sir!

Congratulations on serving for four years, Dennis. Don't take it personally, or let it get you down. The candidate I voted for in my district was not elected either. Well wishes to you.

Thank you for all your hard work in serving our area. Two years from now?

I'm so sorry you didn't win! But thank you so much for the clear stand you have taken for life. God bless you.

Great job these past 4 years. Thank you!

Thank you for being our voice these past 4 years!

Osseo and Maple Grove have been lucky to be represented by you the last four years!

Thanks for your dedicated service. I would hope you’re planning on running to win your seat back in 2020

Thanks for 4 great years. Wish it would have been more

Thank you for your service! So disappointed (putting in nicely) in MN voters. They have truly lost their minds! If you don't take your talents somewhere else, I hope you consider running again in 2020!

Sorry to hear it went the way it did. This was a crazy election.

This state has gone to hell!!
