Rep. Yvonne Selcer to Host Town Hall Listening Session January 10th
Posted by SD48 DFL Communications Team in Events, News, Our Officials
State legislators are preparing for the beginning of the 2015 legislative session on January 6, 2015. State Representative Yvonne Selcer plans to host a town hall listening session Saturday, January 10 from 10:30 – 11:30 AM at the Glen Lake Activity Center in Minnetonka (corner of Excelsior Blvd and Woodhill Road). Rep. Selcer will be available to community members who wish to discuss their priorities as the 2015 legislative session begins.
“It’s important to me that everyone in our community is heard, and I place special importance on every opportunity I get to discuss important issues with residents of Eden Prairie and Minnetonka,” said Rep. Selcer. “The views expressed in these meetings help guide my decision-making on important issues facing our district, and we always have good discussions. I encourage anyone interested in state issues to attend.”
Rep. Selcer is preparing to return to the Capitol for the start of her second term, and last week Speaker-designate Kurt Daudt named her to three committees in the House of Representatives: Education Finance, Education Innovation Policy, and Government Operations & Elections Policy.
“I’m looking forward to getting back to work with my colleagues, especially on education issues,” said Rep. Selcer. “Minnesota has always put kids first, and I know we will continue to work together in a bipartisan manner to keep Minnesota schools the best in the nation.”
Rep. Selcer encourages residents who cannot attend town hall events to contact her on any legislative issue. She can be reached by email at or phone at 651-296-3964.

Statement from DFL Chairman Ken Martin about November forecast
Posted by SD48 DFL Communications Team in Issues, News, Our Officials
“Thanks to Gov. Mark Dayton and DFL leaders’ commitment to improving the economy, creating jobs and investing in education, it’s no surprise that Minnesota has more than a $1 billion budget surplus. I applaud Gov. Dayton and DFL legislators for getting results for the citizens of Minnesota.
“With the lowest unemployment rate in eight years and ranked as one of the top 10 ‘States for Business 2014’ by Forbes Magazine, Minnesota is recovering from years of Republicans’ shifts, slashes and shutdown and is now on the right track for success.
“The projected budget surplus sets the stage for a productive 2015 Legislative Session and allows for Gov. Mark Dayton and legislators to make key investments so everyone benefits from the state’s economic growth.”
