SD40 BPOU Convention Results

April 3rd, 2016

Saturday, April 2, 2016 turned out a great representation of the Brooklyn Center and southern Brooklyn Park delegates and alternates to the SD40 Convention.  All were heard and what a great majority of new people that have gotten involved in the grass roots political process.

The business of the convention was covered along with a good amount of debate and education of the process and activities involved in an election year convention.

The endorsement of candidates was not able to be addressed during this convention as we are still recruiting and meeting with candidates.  If you or anyone you know who lives in Brooklyn Center or Brooklyn Park south of 85th Ave N are interested or even open to finding out more about running for office, send an email to via the contact form or to sd40gop@gmail.com

Latest Judicial Activism, TAKE NOTICE

February 20th, 2014


Fellow Republican Activists,

I’m concerned about this Campaign for Impartial Justice meeting tomorrow night (see attachment).  They are promoting the DFL bills already introduced in the Legislature to take away our right to vote for judges.

They’re trying to put pressure on Deb Hillstrom to hear the Bill.  She is the DFL Chair of the House Judiciary Committee and she’s opposed to her Party’s efforts to promote this constitutional Amendment (called the Retention Amendment or the Quie Amendment).

I’m going to attend this Meeting and I’m encouraging all Republicans in the Fourth Judicial District (Hennepin County) to also attend.

We need to show support for Hillstrom.

Call me at 952-934-4233 if you have any questions.
