Legislative Update- October Community Conversations

Tuesday, October 12, 2021
Rep. Youakim

Dear Neighbors,

I hope this finds you well. A big thank you to everyone who joined us at for the SD 46 Town Hall Meeting last month. If you missed it and would like to catch a recap of our conversation, you can watch the meeting here.

I’m writing today to send a friendly reminder to join me for my October series of virtual community conversations.


If you’d like to reserve a spot and RSVP ahead of time for the information on how to join, please email my legislative assistant, Eric Petersen, at or call 651-296-9889.

I look forward to connecting with you online soon!


Coffee with the Commissioner

You’re also invited to join Commissioner Chris LaTondresse, Senator Latz, and me for an informal, in-person conversation this Saturday, October 16 at 10:00 a.m. Coffee will be provided. Please join us to let us know what’s on your mind.



Your Input is Needed

In addition to sharing your feedback with me during our community conversations, I would greatly appreciate your input by taking two surveys.

The first is for the Minnesota Values Project, an initiative my colleagues and I started a few years ago to gather input on the values we share and what we should prioritize to make our state a better place for everyone. It’s apparent COVID-19 has highlighted vast disparities, and our goal as House DFLers is to help close these gaps to ensure everyone has an opportunity to thrive now and into the post-pandemic future. Please take a moment to take the short, four-question survey.

MVP Survey A

The second survey relates to Hennepin County’s share of $240 million in American Rescue dollars. Commissioner LaTondresse and Commissioner Greene are gathering input from Hopkins and St. Louis Park residents on how these funds should be allocated in our communities. I hope you’ll share your priorities and thoughts about how we can best leverage these recovery investments moving forward.


Keep in Touch

Please continue to reach out anytime at or 651-296-9889. As our legislative work remains remote, email is the quickest way to reach me.

Thank you for the honor of representing our Hopkins and St. Louis Park neighbors at the Capitol.

Have a great week.

Be well,


Cheryl Youakim
State Representative
