Attending caucus makes a difference

To the Editor:

All of us complain at times about the way government is being run. We often get frustrated by what the politicians in Washington, D.C. and St. Paul are doing. What can we do about it?

You can go to your precinct caucus. The caucuses are the starting point where you can make a difference. Going to your local caucus Tuesday, at 7 p.m. is how you can get involved. I urge you to attend, especially if you are a first-time voter. To find your caucus location, go to

At the Republican Caucus, we elect delegates to represent you in the party. We get to vote in the gubernatorial and senatorial straw poll. And finally, we look at resolutions to the Republican platform.

The process is simple and will take an hour or two of your time. Rather than complain, this is where you can do your part. As President Reagan said, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.” We can’t be that generation. Step up, get involved, and help preserve our freedoms.

Caucuses are the first place where your voice can be heard. Come and take part in this grassroots process. — Mandy Heffron, Morrison County Republican chair, Little Falls
