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!
We elected delegates to the State Convention which will be held in Duluth May 30-June 1. This enthusiastic group of delegates will help endorse candidates for Governor and US Senate, among others.
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.
Finally, we selected a slate of resolutions to be passed on to the State DFL. These resolutions help our state party develop the ongoing party platform.2014 resolutions passed by convention
