Thank you to all of you who took our survey or met with members of our Executive Committee to talk about how to make the 2017 endorsement process more inclusive. Using your feedback, we have come up with a streamlined process that hopefully will allow more people to participate in the important 2017 endorsement for Saint Paul Mayor and 3 Saint Paul School Board Members.

2017 Saint Paul DFL Endorsement Process:

  • All endorsement events (caucuses or conventions) will be held on the weekend, because that’s when we heard people were available.
  • Caucuses and Ward Conventions will be held at the same event, so you don’t need to block off two days for this part– just one!
  • To maximize the number of trained volunteers and interpreters, and the amount of face-to-face candidate time attendees receive, caucuses will be on staggered days.

We hope this leads to an endorsement process that makes everyone feel heard, chooses strong, capable candidates, who reflect the values of our diverse DFL community and ensures that participants have a valuable experience.

For more information about how we came up with our process check out the slide show below or download the presentation here.
