MSRPO Political Action Committee

Holding on tight to the gains we've made

The MSRPO political action committee (PAC) is affiliated with the Minnesota Lakes and Rivers Advocates, but is a separately organized group as is required by campaign laws.

The PAC exists to inject lakes and rivers property owner's issues into the politics of our legislative process.

As high as your property tax bill may seem, it could be much worse. Without the gains achieved by MN Lakes and Rivers Advocates your property tax bill would be as much as 40% higher. Still, much work remains to be done.

Political candidate support

2018 is an election year, and there are tremendous opportunities to meet future legislators, to educate them, and to help define their attitudes about our issues. From local races up to the state level the MSRPO PAC is engaged in "forging powerful links among lake advocates and policy makers," and making the case that lake home and cabin owners should have a seat at the table when policy and funding decisions are being made. We are working to ensure that every candidates from both parties understands clearly that Minnesota's lakes and lake heritage are a bi-partisan issue, and they need support at the local level if Minnesota's lake heritage is to be passed down to future generations.
