D Berg to retire after 26 years State Senator Charlie Berg (R- Chokio-) announced today that this will be his last year in office. After serving central Minnesota's Senate District 15, 11 and 13 for twenty-six years, Senator Berg has decided to retire. "I've served some of the best folks in the entire state during my years at the Capitol. We've worked hard together and learned to trust each other, and I will miss representing them," Senator Berg said. "However, I've had a good run, and now it's time for me to close this chapter in my life." Senator Berg is the only lawmaker in state history to serve as a Republican, a Democrat and an Independent. During his eight terms in the legislature, he has obviously earned a reputation as a true maverick who has no problem speaking his mind.
