Congratulations to Representatives Mack and Wills on winning re-election.  Not only winning re-election but also winning every single precinct in the district.  Results like this prove that both Mack and Wills have done an excellent job of representing their district in St. Paul.  

Congrats to them both and keep up the good work!

Thank you to everyone that attended our Campaign Kickoff this last weekend.  It was nice to see people anxious to help.  There were a couple events/opportunities discussed there that I'd like to open up to a broader audience.

First of all many of you are probably aware of the parade in Rosemount this weekend starting at 11am on Saturday, and Rep. Anna Wills will be marching in that parade.  It would be great if you could make it and show her your support!

Immediately following the parade Anna Wills is having her 3rd Annual Ice Cream Social/Fundraiser, being hosted by Kurt and Cindy Bills.  It will begin around 1pm and go until about 3pm.  It will be located at:

Kurt & Cindy Bills house
15365 Danville Ave. W. 
Rosemount, MN 55068

As an added incentive to attend, US Rep. John Kline will also be attending.

In addition, this Saturday is also SUPER SATURDAY!  Basically this is when we dry-run our election day activities but even more important is it's when we prove to the national Republican Party that Minnesota is worth investing in. Funds from the RNC can easily make or break campaigns, and with both a large Senate race and a Governor's race going on, national support is essential!

We'll be making phone calls and knocking on doors.  Our goal is 2880 calls and 520 doors.  

Every person that shows up is critical. We can't stress it enough how much we need volunteers for this as it is the most critical day we have on the calendar prior to the primary election. The goal is challenging and we can exceed it, but not without the help of our local Republicans.

You can help at any of our local Republican Victory offices, but the nearest is the Eagan location:

3090 Courthouse Ln. Suite 300
Eagan, MN 55121

Activities will be going on from 10 am until 9 pm.

If Saturday doesn't work, but you'd still like to get involved, you can contact our local Victory Office Director Jesse Huber at either This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 612-352-7738

Some meet your Representatives at the SD57 hosted campaign kickoff.  If you're so inclined, find out how you can help and if your finances allow make a donation to get them started!

The event will take place at:

Celt's Pub
14506 South Robert Trail
Rosemount, MN

We'll start at 6:30 PM and go until 8:30 PM.

While the event is compliments of the Senate District 57 Republicans, a donation to Rep. Tara Mack and/or Rep. Anna Wills would be appreciated.

Dear Friends,

As of Tuesday, the 2014 legislative session is officially underway. It's good to be back in St. Paul as we get to work tackling the long list of issues ahead of us before the constitutionally-mandated May 19 adjournment date. Here are some updates from the first week of the 2014 session:

Dear Neighbor,

The first week of the 2014 legislative session is in the books.

It has been good returning to the Capitol to address important issues. This is scheduled to be a relatively shorts session in a non-budget year, but we still face a number of key decisions.

Here is a snapshot of this week’s headlines:

Dear Friends,

We're just a few days away from the start of session, so I wanted to send along one last interim update on the community events I've been able to attend over the past couple of weeks, and give you a preview of issues I'll be working on this session.

Community Events:


Earlier this month, Minnesotans gathered for their respective precinct caucuses, the first step in the 2014 election process. I wanted to thank those of you who took time out of your busy lives to get involved--regardless of party--in your local caucus. The world belongs to those who show up, and I appreciate your commitment and dedication to the political process in shaping the future of your respective political party and the state as a whole.

AMSD Legislative Preview

On Friday, February 7th, I attended the Association of Metropolitan School Districts' (AMSD) 2014 Legislative Preview event. In attendance were a number of local school officials and other elected officials to hear from the AMSD about their legislative priorities for 2014. We also heard from Minnesota's Education Commissioner Brenda Cassellius.

This was the first of several pre-session events I attended in the last few weeks. I also attended an Education Summit on February 6th put on by the Minnesota Chamber of Commerce where we heard from a number of speakers about education reform and ways we can tackle our state's unacceptable achievement gap. That weekend, I got the chance to attend a joint event on February 8th put on by the Minnesota Agricultural Education Leadership Council, the Minnesota Association of Agricultural Educators, and the Minnesota FFA for their legislative breakfast. There we heard about some of the unique issues facing Minnesota's agriculture industry, and the educators who work in the field of agricultural education. On Monday, Februray 10th, I attended the Legislative Institute on Child Development Research and Policy, where we heard from leading experts about child development and ways to increase learning and achievement for our youngest learners.

It's that time of year again! Precinct Caucuses are the event that officially kicks off the political season.  A precinct caucus is a meeting organized by Minnesota's political parties where citizens can engage each other in a conversation about which candidates to support in the next general election and what public policy positions should be adopted as part of the party platform.

Attend your precinct caucuses to have a voice in who should be on the ballot as the endorsed candidates.  You can even signup to be a delegate to the convention and actually vote on who gets the party endorsement.  As a delegate you also have the chance to vote on what is and what is not included in the party platform, which defines what the party believes in.

The SD57 Precinct Caucuses will be held on Tuesday, February 4th, 2014 at 7:00 PM.  They will be held at Eastview High School, located at 6200 140th Street West, Apple Valley, MN (map).

One thing you can do to make this event easier for you is to verify which precinct you are located in.  Even if you've looked it up in the past, you'll want to do it again as Minnesota has recently redrawn the precinct boundary lines.  You can look up which precinct you are in here.

If you have any questions, let us know!
