Cass County

Cass County DFL Highway 200 Cleanup Crew

Cass County DFL are your local neighbors and friends. We work to elect endorsed candidates and serve the residents of Cass County by connecting local people with candidates, hosting our annual rummage sale, being present in our local communities by organizing “meet-and-greets”, listening sessions, parade marches, phone banking, door knocking, letter writing, fundraising, putting up lawn signs — whatever needs to be done, that’s what the Cass County DFL does! The more volunteers we have, the more the Cass County DFL can accomplish.

All of our meetings are open to the public. Our Executive Committee meets the second Monday of every month. Meetings may vary between being in person or on Zoom. To attend, contact Cass County DFL chair, Barbara Keinath at [email protected]
