SAINT PAUL – Minnesota Secretary of State Mary Kiffmeyer addressed the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.’s “Day at the Capitol” gathering on February 9th in Saint Paul. Kiffmeyer was introduced by Alpha Kappa Alpha member Cassandra Ward Brown, a prominent Minneapolis attorney.
Kiffmeyer talked about elections and about efforts to encourage people of color to vote.
“Minnesota has had the highest voter turnout in the nation for the past three elections. It’s because of civic-minded citizens like the members of Alpha Kappa Alpha that we’ve been able to do that,” said Kiffmeyer. “It was a real honor to address the group.”
