A Message from the Chair of DFL SD33
In Senate District 33, we can be so proud and encouraged by the results achieved by our TREMENDOUS candidates and all the volunteers who supported the campaigns! We are so thrilled that Rep Kelly Morrison will again be providing exceptional representation for our district and the people of Minnesota! Caitlin Cahill ran a great campaign continuing to move us towards flipping 33A – flipping Maple Plain for the first time! Gretchen Piper ramped up her Senate campaign in record time and turned in results 12% higher than any past campaign for senate – 46%! She moved the A side significantly; an amazing accomplishment in our reddest precincts!
I know you all join me in the pride we take in supporting these three exceptional leaders! Kelly, Caitlin, and Gretchen took on the challenge of a campaign year like no other – the Covid pandemic required candidates to adopt strategies never asked of previous campaigns. They led campaigns that put public safety first and they each lead with intelligence, integrity, compassion, and a clear display of shared values. These are amazing individuals and we are so fortunate they are each willing to make the sacrifice to step into public service. Thanks to their work, we have again moved this district forward and expanded our reach to our SD33 neighbors! I am anxious to partner for our next steps.
As everyone knows, our efforts don’t rest – we make progress even when it’s not a campaign year. Please be on the lookout for a follow up message with ideas on how we can make sure we support Representative Morrison, hold our 33A/33 Senate elected accountable, and engage further in 2021 to prepare us for the next campaign!
Let’s keep moving to BLUE together,
