skater at Sibley Parkmaze: help the legislators find the capitol



*They were printed when most of SD63 was still SD62, so they have a now incorrect number. They color the same though, and still look like our community.


Video of 2013 Keith Ellison Labor Day BBQ


This is video we shot at the 2013 annual Keith Ellison Labor Day BBQ. Speakers included Keith Ellison and Gov. Mark Dayton, and a performance by Charlie Maguire. This was at Wabun Picnic Area in Minnehaha Park, Minneapolis.



SD63 voter registration project


SD63 DFL has spent much of 2013 working on a voter registration project, where we not only sought to register eligible voters, including some who hadn't registered even during a presidential year, but to gather data about about unregistered people. We're learning about who isn't registered, where they are in our district, why they aren't registered, and how to persuade them. We developed scripts and forms, tested methods with small-scale doorknocks, and then had full-scale doorknocks to gather data and registrations. We'll make our forms and methods available to other DFLers. Join our Yahoo Group for access once everything is posted there, or if you're not in SD63, contact the chair at chair @

These photos are from our doorknocks. We BBQ'd for volunteers, and the last time we had a weenie roast. Click the photo to enlarge.
