Update: In the comments, Danny notes:
The Reform 2.0 forum will be on Thursday 9/29. The Republicans may not want to tell others when it is, but they have to tell their own supporters.
The Austin Herald reports in Walz plans stop in Austin:
Congressman Tim Walz will make an appearance at Hy-Vee in Austin next week.
The democratic lawmaker will be at Hy-Vee on Tuesday as part of a “Congress on Your Corner” stop. Walz has several stops planned throughout southern Minnesota this fall, according to a news release.
“Hearing the thoughts and ideas of southern Minnesotans is the cornerstone of our representative democracy. I am looking forward to the opportunity to hear from folks,” Walz said in a news release.
Walz is scheduled to be at the grocery store from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Tuesday.
The Minnesota House Republicans are bringing their Deform 2.0 to Rochester next week. Bluestem hopes that the Rochester Post Bulletin will deign to share an important part of the basic Journalistic Five W's and tell readers what day the Town Hall meeting takes place.
Perhaps the Republicans failed to include that information in their press release since the day is missing in both versions of the announcement in the paper (article and blog post). Perhaps this is a secret the PB political reporter and Tea Party stenographer Heather Carlson is keeping to herself in Republicans to hold town hall on reform:
Rep. Mike Benson of Rochester, Rep. Steve Drazkowski of Mazeppa and Rep. Duane Quam of Byron announced the town hall yesterday, which will focus on the GOP's "Reform 2.0" initiative for the upcoming legislative session. The town hall will be from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Century High School, 2525 Viola Road N.E. in Rochester. Minnesota House Majority Leader Matt Dean is also expected to attend.
News reporting or treasure hunt? Perhaps the legislators are simply aping the habits of corporate bill factory ALEC and aiming for a selective audience. Bluestem can't wait to blog about the Drazkowski for Congress campaign.
