ABOUT US

What is Senate District 34 and what do we do?

Our mission is to endorse, support and elect Republicans to fight for our rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness in our local, state and federal government.We pursue this goal by mobilizing our local area conservatives in support of our local issues as well as Endorsed Candidates.

You can visit the Minnesota Legislative site to gather more information about the legislative process and session activity.

You may also hear us described as a “BPOU”.  What is a BPOU?!

BPOU stands for Basic Political Operating Unit and is your grass roots level of political organization. Generally the BPOU encompasses a particular Senate District.

The BPOU operates as a fairly independent group having its own executive committee, leadership, budget, etc. Each BPOU endorses Delegates & Alternates during election years at it’s Caucuses and during off-election years holds conventions to elect officers to the executive committee and address other new business.

(Each ten years redistricting could affect the BPOU boundaries.)

Our Values

Promote Economic Prosperity

We support lowering the tax burden, exercising spending restraint, and creating and maintaining a fair, honest and competitive business environment to promote economic prosperity and once again make Minnesota the economic engine of the Upper Midwest.

Preserve Civil Rights

We support defending the right to life, protecting religious, political and economic liberties, and respecting personal privacy and property to preserve civil rights and ensure that government treats all of its citizens equally under the law.

Educate our Children

We support the belief that parents are responsible for their children’s education and that parents, teachers and local school boards can make the best decisions about our children’s education.

Strengthen our Families and Communities

We recognize the blessings that God has bestowed on this great Nation. We also recognize the sanctity of human life and the central role of the traditional family in our society. We work to defend those values in order to strengthen our families and communities.

Protect Public Safety

We believe that the most fundamental function of government is to keep citizens and our property secure.

Strengthen the Rule of Law

We support limiting the power of attorneys and frivolous lawsuits, increasing the responsibility of the jury, protecting judicial elections and holding judges accountable to strengthen the rule of law and prevent abuse of our legal system.

Enjoy and Protect our Natural Resources

We believe that proper stewardship of our natural resources and agricultural lands is best achieved through sound science and adherence to constitutionally guaranteed property rights.

Make Government Smaller and Better

We support keeping government functions in state, local or private hands, electing honest and responsive legislative bodies and advocating for fair election processes to make government smaller and better.

Defend America at Home and Abroad

We believe that we can maintain peace by having a strong national defense, securing our borders and by encouraging all people to seek freedom, democracy and free enterprise.
