DFL Endorsed Candidate for MN House 33A – Todd Mikkelson.

We enjoyed a wonderful slate of speakers as shown in our pictures below – candidates for Secretary of State, Deborah Hillstrom and Steve Simon; MN State Auditor Rebecca Otto, MN Attorney General Lori Swanson; candidate for US House in CD3, Sharon Sund; Denise Bader on behalf of Governor Dayton’s campaign; and MN DFL Vice Chair Marge Hoffa.

Congratulations to our new officers and directors elected in our convention (see the “About” page); your willingness to provide leadership for the next two years is greatly appreciated!

We also had the pleasure of electing our delegates/alternates that will represent SD33 DFL on the State Central Committee and in the CD3 convention as well as the State Convention. Thank you to all for your time and for representing our district!

NOTE: We do not yet have a declared candidate to run for MN House in 33B, so please let me know if you are interested or know someone you think would represent you well!

We look forward to a busy campaign season and hope to see many at upcoming events – stay tuned to our events page for ways to participate. With your help, we can turn this district blue!

Reflections on 2012:

2012 was an election year full of activity across Senate District 33. We started with the flurry of activity on redistricting and ran right into election season. It was a Summer and Fall full of parades, public events, candidate forums, voter outreach, and a tremendous event with Governor Dayton.

Thanks to everyone in the District for great enthusiasm and participation. We are looking forward to further strengthening our presence in SD 33 throughout 2013.
