Did You Know...

2018 is fast-becoming an election year for the record books. It’s important to make your voice heard as Minnesota elects legislators, several congressional and statewide officers, and the first new governor in nearly a decade. Wondering how you – and your employees – can get involved? First,   vote in the primary election  on August 14 . If you can’t make it to your polling place on that day, vote early by mail or in person!

Our elected officials play a critical role in affecting your ability to stay and grow jobs here in Minnesota. Supporting candidates who will pass pro-growth policies will help all of us succeed and prosper well into the future.
