At the final Drinking Liberally

331-front-split-toned-with- Ha! Made you look. It will be the last DL session before the precinct caucuses next week. That’s January 28th, starting at six PM. We’ll meet, as usual, in the friendly confines of the 331 Club in Northeast Minneapolis.

State Senator John Marty has the last guest spot at DL before the caucuses. John will join us around seven for some remarks and a meet and greet.

Senator Marty is probably best known as the primary author of health care legislation in Minnesota to create a single-payer health care system. When other candidates for the DFL endorsement want to demonstrate their health care bona fides, they’ll often say, “I’m a co-author of the Marty bill,” or, “I support the Marty bill.”

Senator Marty is also a critic of the way we finance campaigns in the United States. He’s the author of a recent post at Democracy for America entitled “An Election, not an Auction.”

With health care and campaign finance much in the news, John’s remarks will be especially timely.
