CGMC members lobby at the Capitol, enjoy ice cream with legislators

Thank you to all of the CGMC members who joined us Wednesday for our “final push” lobby day and ice cream social. Legislators can be especially busy and elusive this time of year, but our members did a great job of maximizing their time with them and advocating for top CGMC priorities including Local Government Aid, child care, water infrastructure and other bonding priorities, and transportation needs. This CGMC end-of-session priorities handout helped guide their lobbying efforts.

In the afternoon, the CGMC sponsored an ice cream social at the State Capitol — featuring ice cream from Marshall-based Schwan’s — that was well-attended by legislators and legislative staff. It was a successful event that helped bring Greater Minnesota issues to the forefront at this critical time in the legislative session.
