The search is over! After a months-long effort, the LPMN has re-filled a critical position in its core leadership. Party activists are excited to announce that Kevin Bradley has been chosen as the new LPMN Executive Director. Mr Bradley is a native of southern Minnesota, with 20 years’ experience in technical communications and a master’s degree in counseling.
Keegan Iversen was the LPMN's candidate for State Auditor in 2014. He quickly became known as "our hardest-working candidate", logging many miles in his car as he traveled to meet Minnesotans across the state during his candidacy, including an extended trip through the Iron Range. In October, he was injured in a serious motorcycle accident.
In this off-year season, only a few municipalities in Minnesota are having elections. Nonetheless some races will be of interest to voters in Brooklyn Center, St Paul, and Duluth. We hope this Voter’s Guide will assist our membership and supporters in making their decisions in the November 3 general election.
The White House, along with Democratic and Republican politicians in Congress, released a budget deal on October 26 that throws more cash at Big Government programs and raises the debt. It also subverts the budget caps established by the Budget Control Act of 2011 by upping them by $80 billion and by throwing an additional $59 billion into a Pentagon slush fund.
