An email from Denise announcing that Minority Leader Paul Thissen will be joining us at Netroots Minnesota for a lunchtime conversation about the upcoming legislative session.
Last week, Minority Leader Paul Thissen brought to the floor a common-sense amendment: legislators would not consider constitutional amendments until there was a balanced budget signed into law.
Republicans voted down the rule, signaling their plan to pursue the same divisive social agenda.
Progressives have to be ready for these upcoming struggles — for fair taxes, for equality, for the right to choose, and the right to vote.
That’s why I’m excited to announce that Minority Leader Paul Thissen will be joining us this Saturday, January 15th at Netroots Minnesota, a conference aimed at bringing together progressives from around the state to learn about the issues, connect with each other, and organize for future progressive battles in 2011 and beyond.
The day-long event will feature 20 panels, trainings, and issue strategy sessions, all designed to build progressive power and strengthen our community.
During the lunch hour, Minority Leader Paul Thissen will brief Netroots Minnesota attendees about what’s happened so far in this session of the legislature, and what we can expect to see on the issues important to progressives going forward.

Minority Leader Thissen is no stranger to how online activism can engage voters and drive results. During his gubernatorial campaign, @paulthissen regularly held “Twitter Town Halls,” communicating directly with voters, adopting a tactic of accepting questions via Twitter which was used at Netroots Minnesota 2009.
