See CD4-mngop.com for more details


There are 4 levels of organizational meetings in the Republican Party of Minnesota.  The first 2 levels are at the BPOU, or as some call it the Local Party Unit (our chair likes to call it a Neighborhood Party Unit) level which are the Precinct Caucuses, and BPOU Convention.

Neighborhood Party Unit

  1. Precinct Caucuses (February 1st)
  2. BPOU Convention (March 19th)

Congressional District

3. Fourth Congressional District Convention (April 23)

State Party Convention

4. Republic Party of Minnesota State Convention (May 13-14)

While some say you need extensive training, there is no experience necessary to be engaged at every level, though these conventions especially at the 3rd and 4th level are thick with political hobbyists, meaning people who always get elected to convention largely to hobnob and network with people.  If you don’t get elected at any level as a delegate/alternate you can still attend as a guest.

What to expect at the MN 4th Congressional District Convention

  • State & Federal Legislators, and Candidate Speeches
  • Networking with elected leaders, candidates, affiliate groups, non-profit organizations, delegates/alternates from other areas in CD4.
  • Platform Resolutions Debate (at some point it has to happen), there will be some consolidation of resolutions from all the Bpous.
  • Reports from various Convention Committees: Rules, Nominations, Credentials, Constitution, Resolutions, as well as the CD4 Treasurer’s report.
  • Expect a long day beginning in the morning at 9 am when registration starts and ending in the afternoon at the latest 4 pm. Though if you are thinking of being part of the St Paul Republican City Committee you’ll have to stay even later to attend that convention (seems wrong that people of St Paul can’t decide on their own when to have their convention or where).
  • Endorsement of a Fourth Congressional District Candidate. So far Mikki Murray, May Lor Xiong, and Jerry Silver are running for the endorsement (click on their names to visit their website).
  • Election of Fourth Congressional District Officers Chair, Deputy Chair, Vice Chairs, and Secretary for a 1 year term which ends in 2023. In the odd years these Executive Committee Officers are elected to 2 year terms.  You don’t need to be a delegate or alternate to the Convention to be elected, however if you’re not a delegate or seated alternate you will not be able to vote for your candidacy (if you are a delegate or alternate you don’t  have this problem).

What Has Betty Done For You? Or Rather, Not Done For You!

CALLING ALL CD4 REPUBLICANS

Betty is asking for thoughts and opinions at her town hall on February 1st.  Is there a reason it should just be opinions from her base? Congresswoman McCollum represents everyone in CD4.

Take this opportunity to listen to her and then give her feedback on her performance.

Our representatives need to hear from all of us.

Please make every effort to attend on Thursday, February 1 from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. in the auditorium at the North High School in North St. Paul.

McCollum News: Republican-Inflicted Chaos Continues; Town Hall Set for Feb. 1

Betty McCollum

“Dear Neighbor:

On Monday, the Senate and then the House passed a short-term continuing resolution (CR), the fourth since the fiscal year started on October 1, 2017. While this 17-day CR ended a three-day government shutdown, it provides Minnesotans with no assurances that Congress will reach a budget agreement or address critical issues like protecting Dreamers.

I opposed this 17-day stopgap spending bill because it is nothing more than a cover up for the abject failure of President Trump and the Republican-controlled Congress to get its work done and pass appropriations bills.

The Republican strategy of lurching from one continuing resolution to the next will continue to cause serious damage to our national security and erode the vital services that families, businesses, and communities depend upon.

While Republicans have finally stopped blocking reauthorization of the Children’s Health Insurance Program, this legislation still fails Minnesota children and families. It does nothing to extend funding for our Community Health Centers, which will now be forced to lay off staff and limit services.

Until Republicans are serious about negotiating with Democrats on a budget agreement, the continuing resolution passed today will simply yield another continuing resolution — or shutdown — next month. That is a terrible deal for Minnesota.

For the past year, President Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans have wasted time on their disastrous Trumpcare plan to take away health care from millions of Americans and their tax scam giveaway to billionaires and big corporations. They haven’t even tried negotiating in good faith with Democrats on a long-term budget deal and action on urgent national priorities.

Republicans now have until Feb. 8 — with just two full legislative days scheduled between now and then — to reach an agreement with Democrats on a long-term budget deal and national priorities. It is time for President Trump and his Republican Congress to end the chaos and begin to negotiate in good faith.

As a member of the House Appropriations Committee, I will continue to speak out against President Trump and the Republicans’ failure to govern responsibly. And I will continue to vote against further delay on a real budget that meets the needs of our military and upholds our commitments to the American people.

TOWN HALL MEETING SET FOR FEBRUARY 1

The first year of President Trump’s administration has been filled with White House chaos and a Republican Congress that refuses to govern responsibly.

With that in mind, I want to update the Fourth District about what’s going on in Washington and hear directly from you about the issues that matter most to you and your families. I’m hosting a town hall meeting on Thursday, February 1 from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. in the auditorium at the North High School in North St. Paul. North High School is located at 2416 11th Avenue, North Saint Paul, MN 55109.

I’m looking forward to a robust conversation about the Trump administration and our country’s future. Bring a friend or neighbor and join us on Thursday, February 1!”

Sincerely,

Betty McCollum
