Duluth and St. Louis County at the Capitol DaysDuluth & St. Louis County at the Capitol

The Duluth Area Chamber of Commerce coordinates the most effective regional citizen lobbying event at the State Capitol, which attracts over 500 people from Northeastern Minnesota.

Throughout the day, Duluthians and Northeastern Minnesotans meet face-to-face with legislators from all over Minnesota. The same evening, legislators and their staff join the contingency at an informal reception designed to promote continual dialogue. As a result of this event, lawmakers at the Capitol hear about our region's legislative initiatives directly from voters.

2013 Duluth & St. Louis County at the Capitol: In case you missed it

The Crown Plaza Ballroom was buzzing with residents of Northeasten Minnesota who traveled down I-35 to attend the Legislative Breakfast offered as part of the Duluth & St. Louis County at the Capitol event. The evening before, hundreds were in attendance at Crowne Plaza for the Grand Reception, where we hosted state representatives and senators who are participating in the 2013  legislative session.

Governor Mark Dayton provided the keynote address at the breakfast. While acknowledging the significant challenges ahead, he laid out a bold agenda focused on jobs and economic development. Presentations were also given by other elected officials. The breakfast was the capstone of a two-day Capitol lobbying initiative orchestrated by the Duluth Area Chamber of Commerce.

This was the 16th annual campaign at the Capitol hosted by Duluth and St. Louis County and it has truly become a high profile community gathering. Planning is in the works for next year's event, so please join us.
