To the editor:

I recently had the opportunity to visit Cloquet and meet with local insurance agents to learn more about the needs of Cloquet residents, particularly in regard to auto insurance and the stability and affordability of the individual health insurance market.

Commerce is proud of our role in supporting the vitality of Greater Minnesota. From working closely with community banks, regulating the insurance market, helping prepare for and rebuild after natural disasters, to exploring renewable energy economic opportunities, Commerce strives to help Minnesotans live prosperously and resiliently. We are with you every day.

If you have questions or comments for the Department of Commerce, please do not hesitate to reach out at 651-539-1500 or 800-657-3602, or via email at

Thank you to the Cloquet community for hosting me. Together, we make Minnesota a great place to live.
