Nearly 100 delegates gathered in the Milaca High School cafeteria April 8 to endorse the DFL candidates for the Minnesota Senate and House of Representatives for District 15. The delegates endorsed Chilah Brown, a Legislative Aid with the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe, to represent the district in the Minnesota Senate race.

Brown is a resident of Isle and a member of the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe.  She shared about growing up in Oklahoma and then coming to Minnesota where she has settled.  She works in tribal government and is scheduled to complete her Master’s Degree in Tribal Administration and Governance this May.  In her nomination speech she referred to the ineffectiveness of local legislators at addressing issues related to Mille Lacs Lake, and she vowed to unite people to solve problems. During a question and answer period she discussed the return of the walleye on Red Lake as an example of how Tribal Nations and State Government worked well together to reach a good solution.

After receiving the endorsement she said, ”I am honored, and I am up to the challenge,” and she presented wild rice to her competition for the endorsement. She said. “I look forward to knocking on your doors and hugging your children over the summer!”

Chilah Brown is running to make a difference for all of us in the Minnesota Senate. Our commutes have been overlooked and underfunded by lawmakers in St. Paul for too long. Chilah Brown will unite residents of Senate District 15 to find solutions that will uplift all of our families and help our region achieve its full potential.
