Senate District 61
SD61 is home to one of the strongest DFL concentrations in the state and we also have one of the highest voter turnouts (generally #1 in the state). We are proud of our voters.
Follow our social channels for updates on events, meetings and more.
SD61 DFL Central Committee meetings are held on the first Monday of each month. Everyone is welcome!
Currently, meetings are held remotely on Zoom.
Email [email protected]m to be added to the Zoom meeting invite list.
The Senate District 61 Central Committee is an all-volunteer group that ties the DFL voters of the 61st Senate District to party activities, campaigns, and our elected DFL officials. Our committee is responsible for planning caucuses and conventions held in even-numbered years (odd-numbered years are organized by the City of Mpls DFL). We also work toward conferring endorsements on DFLers running for office in our Senate District and then support those candidates to victory.
The stated goal of any Senate District Central Committee is to elect DFL-endorsed candidates to office at all levels from President down. We are also a social group, creating relationships within our DFL circle. We meet once a month (see the events section of this website for details) and generally have a social hour after our meetings.
