Dear Progressives of Golden Valley (and friends),
I hope you all are well! We have our member meeting April 5th (Wednesday) at 7pm at the Golden Valley Byerlys on Duluth street. I'm really looking forward to seeing everyone there for some snacks, conversation and planning! Representative Mike Freiberg will be joining us to talk about what's going on at the legislature. See you Wednesday! If you haven't RSVP'd please do so here.
LOCAL (GOLDEN VALLEY)
The city is looking for feedback for comprehensive planning. Please fill out this survey. Got ideas? Share them. At our meeting, we'll have an update on the sanctuary city issue, light rail, and the bill to close the Perpich school.
 
MINNESOTA
OMNIBUS TIME! Omnibus bills are a pot-luck of legislation thrown together for expedience. See what's on deck this week with this handy synopsis from Watch Your Reps, MN. There are a number of crucial issues at stake. Make calls to your reps about what matters to you! Want to go to a hearing? House hearings are held here, and Senate hearings are here.

I'll be making sure I call in support of a bill (for a change) which requires crisis management and diversity training for all police (SF445). Also opposing protest bills, cuts to clean water, and SF80 which reverses the increase in minimum wage. If you missed it last week, I wrote a post about the historic fight for a minimum wage increase here.

If you've ever wondered if phone calls matter (like I have) read this!

NATIONAL
These truly are wild times. I'm sure we're all waiting to hear what Flynn is going to say now that he's agreed to warble like a canary. I could sit down to write this next week with 45 no longer in office. The roller coaster never stops!

Anyhoo, national organizers are asking us to focus on special elections, such as the upcoming election in Georgia. Here's what David Yankovich (a favorite of mine) has to say!
