Over 30 community members from the Robbinsdale, Hopkins, Orono and Wayzata school districts met with state legislators on March 15. The group advocated for E-12 education priorities and appreciated the updates from legislators, including three of the E-12 Committee Chairs.  School safety was a major part of the discussions.

Thank you Senator Paul Anderson, Senator Carla Nelson and Representatives Sarah Anderson, Lyndon Carlson, Sondra Erickson, Peggy Flanagan, Mike Freiberg, Debra Hilstrom, Jenifer Loon and Michael Nelson for your time and continuing support of education.

The Election Is Over...
        the Results Are In 

         
When the 90th State Legislature convenes on Tuesday, January 3, 2017, 
there will be 23 new legislative members. Republicans enlarged their 
control of the Minnesota House of Representatives and gained control of 
the Minnesota Senate for the first time since 2011-12. 

The Legislative Action Coalition (LAC) is looking forward to working with each of our newly elected School Board Members and State Legislators. 
We are grateful to all the candidates who ran for elected offices for their commitment and willingness to serve our community.
