It's that time again. The Great Minnesota Get-together is here, and for Minnesota's political class that means one thing: Time to chew the fat with prospective voters and constituents.
To that end, Eagan Rep. Laurie Halverson (DFL) will make herself available this Friday at the House of Representatives State Fair booth, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Fairgoers who stop by the House booth will also be asked to participate in its annual opinion poll, which typically surveys at least 10,000 Minnesotans during the fair. This year, the poll will touch on a number of hot button issues, such as increasing Minnesota’s minimum wage, legalizing medical marijuana, gun control and tightening regulations on dog and cat breeders. Poll results will be available via the House website on Sept. 3.
You can find Halverson at the House of Representatives exhibit, which will be located in the Education Building on Cosgrove Street just north of Dan Patch Avenue.
