Lobbying

Lobbying is the practice of using advocates to explain our needs and positions to state legislators and Congressional representatives to make them aware of how current or potential legislation affects our operations and our residents. To accomplish our goals in a cost-effective manner, Sherburne County has contracted with David Turch & Associates at a cost of $4,000 per month to work with our legislators on the federal level regarding legislative policy issues. A periodic update is presented to the Board of Commissioners about any significant activity that has occurred. Please visit their website for more information

In addition, Sherburne County is a member of various state and national organizations that provide such services for not only Sherburne County, but governments and organizations throughout Minnesota and the United States. Below is a list of the organizations that currently lobby on behalf of Sherburne County as well as the annual cost to the County for membership:
