This year’s CGMC Legislative Action Day was a huge success! More than 120 city officials and business leaders from 51 cities attended the CGMC’s annual lobbying event on Wednesday. We also had great attendance from legislators at the legislative reception and dinner that capped off the day, with a bipartisan mix of legislators representing both rural and urban districts.
The day began with a membership meeting in which attendees were apprised of the CGMC’s top legislative priorities and given tips on how to lobby at the Capitol. The meeting was followed by a lunch with Senate Majority Leader Tom Bakk (DFL-Cook) as our guest speaker. Attendees then spent the afternoon meeting with legislators at the Capitol and urging them to support CGMC proposals on LGA, workforce housing, bonding and other issues. A copy of the lobbying materials that were given to legislators can be found here.
A big thank you to all who participated in this year’s event!
