DFL SD 52 Convention


Due to the coronavirus epidemic, the DFL SD 52 convention is happening online via an email ballot. Delegates, find your information in the email you gave us!

The SD 52 Convention is where we endorse our candidates for State legislature, vote on resolutions to be added to the party platform and action agenda, and select local party leadership for the next two years!

Thank You to our SD52 Reps!

Ruth Richardson joined the dream team of Rep. Rick Hansen and Sen. Matt Klein in representing SD52.  During this last legislative session, they worked hard promoting legislation related to education, healthcare, the environment and so many other issues to strengthen our community. Our entire community is now well represented with individuals who are experts in so many fields and who will work together to get things done for families all over our district and Minnesota.
