ST. PAUL — State Sen. Justin Eichorn, R-Grand Rapids, took the oath of office as a Minnesota state senator when the Legislature convened for the 2023-2024 legislative session Tuesday, Jan. 3. Eichorn is serving his third term.

“I am excited to begin a new year in the Senate representing the wonderful folks of Senate District 6,” Eichorn said in a news release. “I am grateful for the trust that has been placed in me and, as I always have, I will work my hardest every day to earn it.

“I am always looking to work across the aisle to get things done, but accountability will be especially important this session. Democrats control the House, Senate and governor’s office — we must ensure they are putting the best interests of all Minnesotans first, not just their base. I am eager to get to work,” he said.
