Democrats in Lakeville, Farmington and Southern Dakota County
Good schools, clean air and water and a livable wage for all working families. These are things we can all agree with. Maybe you haven't thought of yourself as a Democrat, but maybe you should think again. We want everyone to work at jobs they love and enjoy their own version of the American Dream. We want a society where we all have an equal opportunity to succeed. Civility is needed for our country to come back together. Let's start right here in our local communities. Join us.
