I attended a meeting and press conference with Gov. Dayton, Lt. Gov. Tina Smith, and my fellow DFL women lawmakers on Thursday. We discussed a range of issues, including women’s economic security, clean campaigns, and the preemption legislation that would heavily impact women in our state.
One of the cuts made in the Republican budget is the elimination of the Office on the Economic Status of Women (OESW). Rep. Rena Moran spoke about the importance of that office in advising lawmakers and providing information and statistics on women in Minnesota. This is valuable information that legislators must be able to consider when building policy in our state. You can view the press conference by clicking HERE.
Economies perform better as more women join the workforce and obtain economic security; we need to make that a central goal along with bringing more women into elected positions.
To that end, I encourage everyone – and especially women - to consider running for school board, city council, and other elected positions. Having representation that more closely reflects our population is a great thing.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at the Capitol.
