Woodbury resident Ted Lillie is the new president of the Taxpayers League of Minnesota.
The group sought him out for the post, said Lillie, who previously represented much of Woodbury in the state Senate.
Lillie, publisher of Lillie Suburban Newspapers, said he would bring to the post the philosophies he embraced as a senator: holding the line on spending and “trying to run government like a business,” he told Patch on Wednesday.
The Taxpayers League of Minnesota Board elected Lillie as its new president Sept. 12, replacing Philip Krinkie, who resigned in order to run for Congress in the 6th Congressional District in the seat being vacated by Michele Bachmann.
