From the Kitchen Table of

VOICES of Conservative Women & VOICESPAC

Dear Friends,

Whew!  Can you believe the year is almost over?   To be honest, this was a VERY long, whirlwind election season.

Every year teaches us many lessons – this year we learned that the tenacity and sass of this organization can get us through many hurdles and taking the long view on any decision is always the best course of action.

We have been busy since the election has ended.  We thought we would take a moment to update you on what we have been up to lately.

  • VOICES of Conservative Women Year End Wrap-Up Party is THIS TUESDAY at Digby’s in Plymouth! Majority Leader-elect MN Representative Joyce Peppin and Assistant Minority Leader Senator Michelle Benson will be our keynote speakers this year.   We have elected a net of 44 women since our inception in (4) four states.  (63 candidates w/ a 70% win record)  Having a women’s org on the center/center right is just a regular part of the Minnesota political landscape now.  BUT that is a very RARE thing to have a Women’s PAC actively operating in a state, especially for women leaders at the State and Local level.   Many women’s orgs started by a wide variety of individuals have fallen over the years all across the country.   As of last review, we are the ONLY women’s org on the center/center right that will endorse and/or actively work on behalf of women leaders in the country.   To not only survive but grow in a tough state…that is something to celebrate because it is amazingly rare.  So, bring a friend or two with you and come celebrate with us and our friends.  www.2014voicescelebration.eventbrite.com for additional details.
  • 2015 Trainings:   In 2015, we will be back at work working on our training initiatives and our aggressive recruiting effort.   We will be bringing back by popular demand our “Evening of Insight” issue reception which is always a lot of fun.  We will have some “breakfast and learn” events as well as expanding our  ”Morning in Minnesota” – trainings that are web and office based.  We are also working on expanding our electronic library which has a database on a variety of topics and resources.  2015 looks to be a very busy year for our nonprofit.    We are also encouraging people to check out the MN Excellence in Public Service Series.   MEPS is starting their 2015 series in January.   The curriculum is presented by high level speakers and includes discussion of policy and issues, candidate training, campaign management training, discussion of ethics and strategy and public speaking practice and critique to aid in the pursuit of leadership positions and public service positions at all levels of government.  The Series culminates with a three-day conference in Washington DC to discuss national policy issues.  If you are interested in applying or learning more about the program email our friends at MepsSeries@gmail.com.
  • Director of Public Relations and Communication Wanted for VOICES:   We are looking to add a Director of Public Relations & Communication.   We have a great story to tell.  But having an structural engineer tell the story…well, that means it doesn’t get told for obvious reasons.  Therefore, we need to expand our board and bring on an talented individual who will be willing to help this organization revamp our marketing, public relations and communication plan.  This is a volunteer position, is flexible and your help would be gratefully appreciated.  If you are interested, please email Board@voicesofconservativewomen.org 
  • We also have applications open for our Spring internships.  Click here to learn about our  Intern positions.  If you know of college Junior or Senior who is looking for an internship, please let us know or forward them this email.   

Finally, we need your help.  If you are willing to volunteer or donate to help us train and elect more common sense pocketbook women to office, WE NEED YOU.  Please consider donating $25, $50 or more today to help us support great women candidates.

If you are interested in volunteering your time and talents, please email volunteer@voicesofconservativewomen.org

Alexandria, Minnesota - VOICES of Conservative Women (VOICESPAC) announces their endorsement and support of MN State Representative Mary Franson (8B)  

“VOICES of Conservative Women endorses MN State Representative Mary Franson for a third term.  Mary serves on the following committees; Early Childhood and Youth Development Policy, Health and Human Services Policy and Higher Education Finance and Policy.  Mary is a leader that understand that decisions made in St. Paul have real consequences for families and businesses.  As the only childcare provider in the legislature, when women owned small business leaders needed an advocate, they knew they could count on Mary.   Mary was able to explain how the union takeover of childcare providers’ businesses would add additional red tape for the childcare providers, increase the costs to families and would also limit families’ childcare choices across the State.  Mary made sure that those hardworking moms and dads and childcare providers knew they had a friend and advocate on the House Floor who would stand up for them and the businesses childcare providers built.   VOICES PAC is confident that MN State Representative Mary Franson will continue to be an advocate for small business, sound economic policy and be a champion for causes she is passionate about.  We are looking forward to seeing what Mary will continue accomplish during her career,” said Jennifer DeJournett, President of VOICES of Conservative Women.

“I’m honored to have the endorsement of VOICES of Conservative Women. After the current legislature’s unprecedented attempt to impose the forced unionization of childcare providers, we will need more conservative women in office next year to push back against the efforts to squeeze more money out of women-owned small businesses for public sector union bosses.”,” said MN State Representative Mary Franson.

We believe it would benefit the residents of House District 8B and our State to re-elect Mary Franson to the State LegislatureTherefore, we encourage our friends to help Mary by donating and volunteering for her campaign by visiting her website at  www.fransonforstatehouse.com, concluded DeJournett.

“VOICES of Conservative Women endorses MN State Representative Sondra Erickson.  Sondra serves on the following committees; Education Policy (Minority Lead), Education Finance and Property and Local Tax Division.  Education policy and financing is a complex issue and is critical to the long term future of our State.  Accomplishing meaningful education reform will require individuals willing to have honest conversations on how best to help ALL children achieve in addition to having a depth of knowledge paired with the desire to see real, robust education reform.  

In the Pioneer Press, she co-authored an opinion piece on September 16, 2014 regarding education reform.  Sondra outlined her desire to see real, robust education reform that will help close the achievement gap and bring fairness for ALL children in education funding. In the article she said the following; 

Status quo is not acceptable for children who are falling behind their peers and our children deserve better than another legislative season of “status quo”.  Nothing changes unless we are willing to look at real reform so that ALL children can succeed.  Sondra’s experience has been and will continue to be an asset for ALL children all across the State,” said Jennifer DeJournett, President of VOICES of Conservative Women.

“I am honored to receive the endorsement of VOICESPAC, representing women across our state and nation who believe in conservative principles. Together we can make a difference by making our voices heard to support excellence in education, individual responsibility, free market and fiscal responsibility, all of which help women succeed every day,” said MN State Representative Sondra Erickson (15A).

Sondra has shown that you make a difference when you are willing to roll-up your sleeves and get to work.   She has made a difference and we are confident that she will continue to work to help ALL children achieve to their highest academic potential.  We look forward to a gavel in Sondra’s hands so that she can begin the work of moving us towards real reform that will provide real opportunity for ALL children to achieve.  Individuals can help support Sondra’s re-election by donating and volunteering for her campaign, concluded DeJournett.

Chanhassen, Minnesota - VOICES of Conservative Women (VOICESPAC) announces their endorsement and support of MN State Representative Cindy Pugh (33B).  

“VOICES of Conservative Women endorses MN State Representative Cindy Pugh for a second term.  Cindy serves on the following committees; Civil Law, Government Operations and Judicial Finance and Policy. Being a good steward of the taxpayers’ dollar and being responsive to her constituents are some of the ways that Cindy has served her community well in her first term.  Cindy is known for her strong work ethic and her ability to inspire others to work together towards a common goal.   She is a humble servant and has been an inspiration to others.  We look forward to seeing what Cindy will accomplish in a second term,” said Jennifer DeJournett, President of VOICES of Conservative Women.

“I’m thrilled to receive the endorsement of VOICES of Conservative Women. I share the goal of VOICES to work to elect more conservative women to office in 2014,” said MN State Representative Cindy Pugh.

Cindy has shown that the commonsense pocketbook mom can make a difference in St. Paul.  Therefore, we believe it would benefit the residents of House District 33B and our State to re-elect Cindy Pugh to the State Legislature. Individuals can help support Cindy’s re-election by donating and volunteering for her campaign, concluded DeJournett.  

VOICES PAC will be continue to endorse candidates throughout the 2014 election year.
