I am honored to be the DFL endorsed candidate for House District 62B

Thank you to everyone who participated in the Senate District 62 Convention on Saturday, April 16. Your participation plays an enormous role in framing our party’s message for the 2016 campaign.

The DFL delegates of District 62B, by unanimous acclamation, gave me the honor of serving as the District’s DFL endorsed candidate for the 2016 election.  I will continue to work hard to maintain your support.  Thank you again!

Great Turnout for Caucus Night-Thanks to all Volunteers

Thank you all for taking time out from your busy schedules to attend precinct caucus. Your participation last night plays an enormous role in framing our party’s message for the 2016 campaign.

DFL’ers must be united in our efforts to share our positive vision for responsible community development with quality jobs, affordable housing and viable neighborhood services. Our challenge is to frame messages for economic and social justice issues that will resonate beyond the domain of our allies and core supporters. By tapping into shared values of community, fairness and opportunity, we can gain widespread support for our efforts to meet the real needs of our residents.

With your help we can change public perception about economic justice issues by shifting the focus from government failings, and “reforming” individuals, toward other actors in the system. I believe we can broaden support for economic policy changes we are seeking by reframing our communications in terms of our common economic security and the creation of a skilled workforce for the future.

I am honored to have been chosen to represent House District 62B. It is a privilege to serve you and present your opinions and perspectives at the State Capitol. I remain committed to broadening our base, building support and working together to meet the district’s needs for good jobs, access to quality healthcare, affordable housing, a diverse mix of businesses with quality products and services, safe neighborhoods and a clean environment.

Thank you again for attending caucus, and I look forward to running for re-election this year and campaigning with you to elect progressive candidates.

Sincerely,

Susan Allen
