The last elections were challenging. Not just for Minnesotans, but nationally. What we have seen is that there is a need for local involvement in order to drive a clear, winning agenda for our candidates. This is where you come in. It is time for us to show up for our neighbors and friends. Not to simply complain about the state of affairs, but to show up and connect and help to build the future of this Senate District. The days of “hoping” that things will work out are over. We need to act, and we need to act now.

The Senate District 50 Convention shall be composed of the delegates and alternates elected at the precinct caucuses in February of 2022 currently living within the boundaries of House Districts 50A and 50B.  If you are no longer living in House District 50A or 50B, please notify Wayne Wenger at [email protected] or 952-926-8627.  

The Senate District Convention shall be held for the purpose of:

  • Approval of the Senate District 50 Bylaws
  • Election of Officers of the Senate District 50 Executive Committee for two-year terms: 2 Co-Chairs, 10 Vice Chairs (4 from 50A, 4 from 50B and 2 from either House District), Treasurer, Secretary, and Communications Chair.
  • Election of Delegates, First Alternates, Second Alternates, and Third Alternates to the State Central Committee.
  • Transaction of such other business as may properly come before the convention.
