REPORTS

 

ELECTIONS

Congratulations to the sweep in the November 2016 elections by the SD 7 DFL-endorsed candidates.  They represent a bright spot in this dark moment.

  • Elected to the Minnesota Senate 7 – Erik Simonson.
  • Re-elected to the Minnesota House 7A – Jennifer Schultz.
  • Elected to the Minnesota House 7B – Liz Olson.
  • Re-elected to the St. Louis County Board District 2 – Patrick Boyle.
  • Elected to the St. Louis County Board District 3 – Beth Olson.

 

Congressman Rick Nolan has won re-election to the U.S. House for Congressional District 8.

And of course we know how the Presidential race ended.  We thank President Obama for his service these past eight years.  We will miss him, but we look forward to his return to organizing efforts as we continue to work for social and economic justice and the other tenets of the Democratic party.  Here are some sites that have the transcript of President Obama’s farewell speech on January 10, 2017:

A huge thank you to the staff who worked so hard on behalf of our candidates, and to the many volunteers who helped out in different ways.

Now it’s time to start preparing for elections down the road.  For information see:
