The SD66 DFL Central Committee meetings are open to the public and held online via Zoom. Attending is the best way to find out what’s going on politically in the district, as well as how to get involved! Check our calendar for the most up-to-date meeting dates and times.
This is where the central and executive committee members attend to new and old local party unit business, including organizing events such as the caucuses and conventions. We are often visited by our local representatives, who give us updates on their legislative efforts and campaigns, as well as answer constituent questions.
Appendix A: Expectations for Speakers at SD66 DFL Meetings
During meetings, central committee members and public attendees may request to be recognized to speak by the chair. A good faith effort will be made to recognize speakers in the order requested, with priority being given to those who have not yet spoken before any speakers are permitted to speak twice.
During each meeting, elected DFL officials representing political units of Senate District 66 shall be permitted 10 minutes to report to the body and answer questions. If a particular topic is expected to require more time, it should be added as an agenda item for discussion.
At the end of each meeting, 20 minutes may be set aside for candidates seeking DFL-endorsement who wish to speak. For candidates that are running for an office eligible for endorsement by the Senate District 66 DFL, including elected DFL officials who have already given reports, each shall have the lesser of five minutes or the allotted time divided by the number wishing to speak. For candidates that are running for an office ineligible for endorsement by the Senate District 66 DFL, including elected DFL officials, each may have up to 2 minutes to speak and answer questions as time allows.
All candidates are encouraged to stay after adjournment to mingle with the meeting’s attendees and answer additional questions.
