Sen. Chris Eaton to hold Brooklyn Park town hall meeting

St. Paul, Minn.— State Senator Chris Eaton is holding two town hall meetings in February. The first meeting will take place on Saturday, February 17 at 10:30 am.

Town hall meetings are informal public forums that give members of the community an opportunity to meet with their legislators to discuss the 2015 legislative session and emerging issues.  “I urge citizens to attend our town hall meetings so I can hear your concerns,” Sen. Eaton said. “Town hall meetings give us a better understanding of the issues that matter to our district and ideas on how to solve them.”

Sen. Hoffman support aids Brooklyn Park pharmaceutical center transition

Thanks to Sen. John Hoffman’s (DFL-Champlin) ongoing support and commitment to the Minnesota Investment Fund (MIF) – a Brooklyn Park pharmaceutical company recently purchased by a Japanese company is on its way to receiving $2 million from DEED. The Department of Employment and Economic Development administers funds from MIF to local units of government who provide loans to assist business expansion which in turn helps support job growth and economic development.
