2014 Candidate Materials

The Coalition of Greater Minneseota Cities (CGMC) is a non-profit, non-partisan advocacy organization comprised of local officials from 85 cities outside of the Twin Cities metropolitan area. For more than 30 years, CGMC has united Greater Minnesota cities with similar concerns. Our mission is to develop viable, progressive communities for businesses and families through strong economic growth and good local government. The CGMC supports fair property taxes, good land use planning, sensible environmental regulation, a balanced transportation system and effective economic development tools to meet that goal.

Our organization does not endorse candidates running for political office, but we think that it is important for candidates to know about issues that are priorities for Greater Minnesota cities. Therefore, we have prepared background information in several policy areas: Property & LGA, Annexation & Land Use, Economic Development and Environment & Energy.
