Minnesota has made significant progress in investing in our state’s earliest learners, but much work remains. Looking ahead, a new Governor in 2018 will play a pivotal role in deciding the direction and importance of early childhood care and education in Minnesota.

MinneMinds is excited to announce two upcoming community conversations with DFL and GOP candidates for governor, to discuss their plans for addressing early childhood issues in our state. These conversations are a great way for advocates, parents, providers, and any Minnesotan interested in the future of early childhood to hear about the priorities of leading candidates for governor.

The conversation will focus on ensuring Minnesota’s early childhood care and education opportunities are multi-generational, high-quality, equitable, and accessible for children and families with the highest needs. Additional discussion will focus on the unique early childcare issues related to workforce and economic development.

For our first conversation on October 19, we have invited each of the announced DFL candidates for Governor to join us, and we look forward to an open and forthright conversation.

Announced DFL Candidates Invited:
Mayor Chris Coleman (confirmed)
Rep. Tina Liebling
Rep. Erin Murphy
State Auditor Rebecca Otto
Rep. Paul Thissen
Congressman Tim Walz (confirmed)
