Meet Me at Union 32 at 6:30 on the 7th!

Turns out the beginning of April can be a bit snowy. Not to worry though. If you missed out on Casper’s because of the weather, I’ve got another event coming up soon.

You are cordially invited to a snow-free fundraiser Monday, May 7th, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Union 32 Craft House, 2864 Highway 55, Eagan, Minnesota 55121. Our suggested donation for the evening is $20.

I would love to talk with you and hear about the issues that are important to you. Come meet me, enjoy some delicious food and beverages available for purchase, and check out Eagan’s unique new watering hole. It’s going to be a lot of fun.

Please let me know if you’re coming by emailing or with an RSVP on my Facebook event. Consider liking my Facebook page while you’re there. You can also stay up to date by following me on twitter at @KinerForMNRep.

Honored to be Endorsed for District 51A

We had great turnout on Saturday in the SD51 convention. It was wonderful to have a chance to talk with so many supporters and delegates at Dakota Hills. At the convention I was honored to be endorsed by unanimous acclimation by the delegates from house district 51A.

We also had a few candidates and familiar faces at our convention. Thanks for stopping by, everyone!

I’m looking forward to a great campaign. Onward to victory in November!

Events Coming Up: Organizational Meeting Thursday March 1, Convention Saturday, March 3!

Hi everyone,

Tomorrow, Thursday, March 1, at 7:00 pm we’re having an informal organizational meeting for the campaign. If you’re interested in getting involved to volunteer, let me know. My contact information, as always, is in the contact tab. Give me a call and I’ll give you details. There’s no better time to get involved than early!

Also, I’m looking forward to seeing all of Senate District 51’s delegates at the Saturday, March 3, convention. It has been wonderful getting to know everyone in these early stages of the campaign so far, and I look forward to another opportunity to see you face to face. There’s no better way to get to know what issues are most important to our community than getting together to discuss them, so thank you all for signing up to be delegates and make your voices heard.

Stay tuned for more updates as the campaign progresses.
