Legislative Update - June 15, 2018

Friday, June 15, 2018

Dear Neighbor,
I hope that everyone is enjoying the beginning of summer and the warm weather. I would like to thank all of those who attended the SD46 Session Wrap-Up Town Hall on June 6 that Senator Ron Latz, Rep. Peggy Flanagan and myself hosted. It was a great conversation! And, a big thank you to Reg Dunlap from Park TV for recording it. You can watch a replay of it here.
Since this is an election year, Minnesota State Representatives and Senators are prohibited from sending out unsolicited communications 60 days after the end of session with state resources. What that means, is that I can answer e-mails, invitations and correspondence from you at my legislative office but I cannot send out Weekly Updates after July 20 and until session starts again.
It is so very important to me to hear from you about the issues you care about. It really does help me to do my job better in St. Paul. So please keep contacting me with your thoughts, ideas and concerns. I would be more than happy to come and speak at your community meeting, neighborhood event, rotary club, book club, etc. or just grab a cup of coffee. I would also love to tour your business if you would be willing to host me. The easiest way to set an appointment is via my legislative e-mail below.
Community Events
Summer is full of so many great ways to get out, meet your neighbors and enjoy the community that we live in. Check out the links below to see local events, festivals, music in the park and much more. On a special note, Parktacular is this week with the parade on Saturday, June 16.
Congratulations Graduates!
I would like to join our community in congratulating the high school graduates from Hopkins and St. Louis Park! Graduates will often look back on this event as a special milestone in their life. Graduating high school is unique in that it marks both an end and a beginning of a personal journey. Obtaining a high school diploma required many hours of classroom study and a commitment to accomplish this goal. Our graduates should be commended for a job well done. This is just the beginning of whatever the future will hold for them. I wish them all best for the bright future that lies ahead!

Have a wonderful summer!
