We’re honored to announce he has earned endorsements from four prominent local officials. While local endorsements are not uncommon in elections, Steve has recently earned the endorsement of Eden Prairie Mayor Nancy Tyra-Lukens.

In addition to Mayor Nancy Tyra-Lukens, Cwodzinski received endorsements from:

  • Minnetonka Mayor Terry Schneider
  • Eden Prairie City Councilor Ron Case, and 
  • Minnetonka City Council Member Bob Ellingson.

The latest round of endorsements adds more momentum to Cwodzinski’s vibrant campaign. The first-time candidate has earned dozens of endorsements from current and former elected officials and community organizations.

Steve is committed to ensuring that Minnesota continues to lead the nation in job growth and quality of living.

“Steve is committed to ensuring that Minnesota continues to lead the nation in job growth and quality of living. He is a unique candidate that understands both education and our community. That’s why I’m finally endorsing a candidate for State Senate in 48. I don’t believe in endorsing candidates because I can, I endorse the candidates that I know will do the best for our community”, said Mayor Terry Schneider.
