About Us

The Hubbard County DFL, a unit of the Minnesota DFL, provides support for local, state and national Democratic candidates, fosters and promotes understanding of current issues and provides ways to participate in the democratic process.

“The moral test of Government is how that Government treats those who are in the dawn of life, the children; those who are in the twilight of life, the elderly; and those that are in the shadows of life, the sick, the needy and the handicapped.” – Hubert H. Humphrey

It is the Hubbard County DFL’s goal to assure that government lives up to this test since it is still true that the strength of a nation is determined by how the marginalized people in that nation are treated. Our priorities are to insure: 1) every person in our society has access to affordable health care and an affordable education, 2) workers have the right to organize and bargain collectively, and 3) the economic well-being of rural communities is protected through the preservation of small business and family farms.
