Spring Conversation Answers “How are We Doing, With MN Legislative Majority?”


Great food in a beautiful, relaxed setting and excellent discussions with others from SD49 had all of the attendees prepared to hear from, and interact with, the panel at the Spring Conversation fundraiser May 12.

Our panel of three experts -- David Hahn (former Minority Leader of the Senate), Kim Crockett (Executive Vice President, Center of the American Experiment), and Kurt Zellers (former Speaker of the House) - provided political and policy insights as they tackled the first set of key questions posed by moderator & SD49 GOP Co-Chair Randy Sutter:  We Republicans elected a majority in both houses of the Minnesota Legislature.  The session has a bit more than a week remaining.  How are we doing?  Have we accomplished enough to satisfy voters?  Will we be in a good position for the 2018 races?

The consensus was: given Democrat Governor Dayton’s negotiating style and veto promises (since fulfilled), this Legislative session’s results are likely to disappoint most voters. Voters had high expectations for changes and those won’t happen this session.  The negative effects on the next election could be less if the party does better in several areas.  These include: communicating the process barriers, setting better expectations, putting longer-term strategies in place, and celebrating the victories that were achieved.
