Former State Rep. Al Doty has joined U.S. Rep. Rick Nolan's staff, the 8th District Minnesota Congressman announced today.
Doty, a native of Royalton, served as State Representative from District 12-B from 2007-2010. A former Royalton City Council member, and teacher/head wresting coach at Pierz Healy High School, he was Vice Chair of the Minnesota House Agriculture, Rural Economics and Veterans Policy Committee.
In his new capacity, Doty will work closely with Nolan on a wide range of agriculture, rural development, small business and veterans' issues and projects throughout Crow Wing, Wadena, Hubbard, Cass and Morrison Counties.
"Al Doty's experience in local and state government and education, as well as his lifelong involvement in non-profit and volunteer organizations and wildlife conservation, will be invaluable in our efforts to build and rebuild our small towns, farms and locally owned businesses in the Morrison-Crow Wing County area," Nolan said. "We will benefit greatly from his wise counsel and advice, and I am so proud to have him on our Congressional staff team."
