ST. PAUL – The League of Minnesota Cities has honored State Representative Greg Davids (R-Preston) with its 2014 “Legislator of Distinction” award. The League annually recognizes lawmakers who display leadership in supporting city-friendly legislation.

“It is truly a privilege to receive this award,” Davids said. “As a legislator who represents a large number of small towns, I’ve always tried to recognize the importance of city governments and support legislation that gives them the tools they need to succeed.”

Specifically, the League noted Rep. Davids’ work on legislation that clarifies the sales tax exemption for cities and counties as well as the need for workforce housing.

The League of Minnesota Cities represents 832 member cities.
