In preparation for the DFL SD63 Senate District convention on March 24th, 2018, the Nominations Committee is taking applications from those interested in serving as Senate District Officers or State Central Committee (SCC) Delegates. Officer positions consist of Chair, Vice-chair, Outreach and Inclusion Officer, Secretary, Treasurer, and Directors (see form for position descriptions). Officers and and SCC delegates serve for two year terms or until the next Senate District convention, whichever comes first.

The Nominations Committee will schedule screening sessions with applicants and will recommend a slate to be voted on by delegates at the Senate District convention on March 24th. All applications filled out by March 14th will be considered.

Somehow, MNGOP legislators forgot to renew the suspension of the the Political Contribution Refund program, so once again Minnesotans can contribute $50 per individual or $100 per couple to the state candidate or political party unit of their choice – and get it refunded right back within weeks.
Participating in the Political Contribution Refund program is easy: just fill out this form and send it in with your emailed contribution receipt.
