Despite the cold temperatures, we are still planning to go ahead as scheduled with our Legislative Action Day events this Wednesday, Jan. 30. In order to minimize time spent outdoors, we have hired a coach bus to provide ongoing shuttle service that afternoon between the Best Western Capitol Ridge (the location of morning activities and lunch) and the State Capitol complex. Shuttle service will also be available between the Best Western and Mancini’s in the evening. The full schedule for the day is as follows:

10 a.m. – Registration begins at Best Western Capitol Ridge (161 St. Anthony Ave., St. Paul)
10:30 a.m. – Legislative update and messaging
12 p.m. – Lunch with speaker Gov. Tim Walz
1-5 p.m. – Attendees lobby and meet with legislators at the Capitol complex (note: members are responsible for scheduling their own meetings)
5 p.m. – Reception at Mancini’s Char House (531 7th St. W, St Paul)
6 p.m. – Dinner with legislators at Mancini’s

Of course, we also want to make sure that everyone stays safe and uses their best judgment. If you are signed up to attend Legislative Action Day and decide that you want to cancel your registration, please let us know by contacting Julie Liew at jlliew@flaherty-hood.com or 651-225-8840. We will not charge you the registration fee or, if you have already paid, we will issue a refund.

Note about parking at the Best Western Capitol Ridge: All CGMC members will be able to park in the lot for free. The access code to get in and out of the parking lot is 137#. The code will also be posted at the hotel.
