Resolution Results Are In

Hello Saint Paul DFLers!

Thank you to everyone who volunteered and attended the Saint Paul DFL’s 2015 City Convention. We had a historic attendance record with 96% of delegates turning out and the majority of them staying through ten hours of passionate discussion and balloting.

I am proud to say we endorsed four amazing school board candidates; Zuki Ellis, Steve Marchese, Jon Schumacher and Mary Vanderwert. These four impressive leaders will work with parents, teachers, students and the community to make sure that Saint Paul Public Schools teach all kids.

Our devoted resolutions committee has tallied all the votes and you can find a list of the resolutions that passed the needed 60% here: Saint Paul 2015 Resolutions Report

Please check back soon for more information about our endorsed candidates, upcoming events and opportunities to make our party and our city stronger. Until then- you know where to reach us-
