Welcome Our New Executive Committee

We meet the fourth Tuesday of each month with a proposed agenda posted here: https://dfl52.org/agendas-minutes/

DFL SD 52 Convention Results

Thank you for taking the time to vote in the first electronic DFL SD 52 Convention. Overall, 220 out of 251 eligible delegates participated in the vote, which is a 87% turnout rate!

You’ll be glad to know that we’ve made endorsements in all of our local races in the first round of balloting:

In Senate Seat 52, we endorsed Matt Klein.
In House Seat 52A, we endorsed Rick Hansen.
In House Seat 52B, we endorsed Ruth Richardson.

Congratulations to all of our endorsed candidates, and we look forward to working with you to win on election day!

We elected 40 delegates to CD 2 and State Conventions. All alternates have been “automatically upgraded” to delegates.

The CD 2 convention will be conducted through a google form based online balloting system to complete the essential party business of electing delegates, conferring endorsements, election of pre-convention committee members and election of Presidential elector. Balloting will occur over a 10 day period – Saturday, May 16th thru Saturday, May 23rd.

The Resolutions that passed can be viewed in our latest post!

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.
