2014 Convention a Success!

SD65 DFL Delegates met on Saturday morning for our 2014 convention.  Thank you to our Convention Chairs Senator Sandy Pappas and Ilhan Omar and thank you to Brian P. Joyce for the photography.

What did our convention accomplish?

We endorsed our DFL Candidates for Minnesota House of Representatives – Representative Rena Moran (65A) and Representative Carlos Mariani (65B).  We look forward to seeing these two leaders re-elected to another term!

Saint Paul Federation of Teachers President Mary Catherine Ricker encouraged delegates to donate to Central High School’s fund for low income student lunches and field trips.

We raised $370 to support low income students at Central High School who need help paying for lunches and field trips.

We elected our SD65 Executive Committee members – this group of volunteer leaders will be responsible for guiding our Senate District 65 activities not only through this election, but over the next two years as we prepare for the 2016 Presidential election.
