Ramsey County [2] is a county located in the U.S. state of Minnesota. As of 2000, the population was 511,035. Its county seat is St. Paul6, which is also Minnesota's state capital. The county is named for Alexander Ramsey, the first governor of the Minnesota Territory. In 2005, the county implemented a ban on tobacco smoking which exempted any establishment that made more than half of its net sales on liquor. In January 2006, the city council of St. Paul, long blocked by former mayor Randy Kelly, passed a ban on all smoking in bars and restaurants in the city which was signed into law by new mayor Chris Coleman. The ban was championed by city councilman David Thune, himself a pack-a-day smoker. Image File history File links Map_of_Minnesota_highlighting_Ramsey_County. ...
