Craft Talk:

Today was a special day. We held a joint meeting with the Ham and Eggs Networking group and Jim Erickson arranged to have US Congressman for the Third Minnesota district, Dean Phillips, speak to us.

Congressman Phillips briefed us on his efforts to increase bi-partisan legislation and modernize how Congress works for us.

Congressman Phillips mentioned several items where improvements can made in technology, orientation, staffing, and scheduling.

In addition to his prepared comments, Congressman Phillips answered a number of questions from the audience.
