Minnesota Senate Republicans went down to the wire this legislative session. While a budget framework agreement was announced Sunday evening, the negotiations to get there covered a number of contentious issues, including increased taxes, growing state government control over health care, unrealistic energy mandates, and even a state model for K-12 sex education.
The Senate District 49 Dinner Program on Tuesday evening, May 28 will look at what was achieved in the Republican efforts to push back on the long-term plans of Gov Walz and the House DFL majority. Senator David Osmek will talk about the legislative session in general and the debate over the state’s energy policy in particular. He will share his views of the state of Minnesota politics and the election outlook for 2020.
David Osmek (R, Mound) is a two-term senator, first elected in 2012. He is the chair of the Energy and Utilities Finance and Policy committee and serves on the Capital Investment, Local Government, and Transportation Finance and Policy committees in the senate. He is one of two Republican senators serving in districts in Hennepin County

Our monthly happy hour event called Pints & Politics continues to be a lively and well-attended social networking event. We are drawing a good number of people from Minneapolis, Bloomington, Richfield, Edina, Eden Prairie, Hopkins, St. Louis Park, Golden Valley, and outlying areas.
Pints & Politics is not a venue for formal speeches and dry discussions. If you want a casual opportunity to meet and get to know other local Republicans, this is about as good as it gets.
Five Senate Districts in the southwest neighborhoods of Minneapolis co-host a Pints & Politics on the second Monday of every month. Our next gathering will occur on Monday, June 10, at Poor Richard’s Commonhouse, 8301 Normandale Blvd, Bloomington. You can look forward to meeting a lot of great people, including a few local Republican leaders. This is the place to greet old friends and meet new ones.
Come as early as 5 pm to enjoy happy hour prices. Or drop in up to 7:30 pm, as many of us will still be there. Have a beer and talk one-on-one with state party officers, local party leaders, and a number of genuinely good people.
Scroll down to register in advance. Unlike the DFL-led House, we are actually lowering the tax we charge for pre-registration. You can now register early for $7 on-line to help defray the cost of a selection of appetizers. Or pay $10 at the door (cash or check). Credit cards cannot be accepted at the door.
Bring a friend!
