What is SD63-DFL?
Senate District 63 DFL is an official political unit of the Minnesota Democratic Farmer Labor Party. We are a grassroots, all-volunteer organization that works hard to elect Democrats to leadership positions in Minnesota state government and in Washington, D.C. We are progressive Democrats - we believe in the concept of "the common good", that we all do better when we all do better. We want legislation that is fair to all. And we also want government that is efficient, honest and transparent.
We represent Democrats in a geographical area that includes the eastern parts of Richfield and South Minneapolis, as well as Fort Snelling and the Airport. Our specific boundaries are the boundaries associated with Minnesota State Senate District 63 as determined by the Minnesota Legislature. Here is a map of Senate District 63.
What do we do?
We seek out and support people who want to run for office as a member of the Minnesota DFL. We hold nominating conventions where candidates are officially endorsed as DFL candidates. Once we have endorsed a candidate, we actively campaign on the behalf of that candidate. This means we do things like put up political lawn signs, distribute campaign literature, and talk to our neighbors about why we think our candidates are the best. We hold fundraisers to raise money to re-elect our local candidates and we write letters to the editor on their behalf.
Who Runs SD63-DFL?
SD63-DFL is run by the SD63 Central Committee, which consists of people just like you who decided to become involved in politics. The Executive Committee of the Central Committee includes the Chairperson, Vice Chair, Outreach Officer, Secretary, and Treasurer. The Central Committe also includes Directors, Precinct Chairs and Associate Precinct Chairs. All of these positions have specific duties as defined by our State DFL Consititution and our local SD63-DFL Constitution. SD63 Central Committee members are elected every two years at our SD63 Convention.
