  Get active. Learn more about the Democrats in Scott County and what we stand for. Our government is only as good as we make it. That means we all must do our part.
If you've never known, DFL stands for Democratic-Farmer-Laborer. We are the party of the people, with a long, proud tradition in Minnesota. It was the people-first policies, enacted by DFL leadership (along with progressive Republicans), that propelled Minnesota to the top rank of US states in economic, health, education, and social justice measurements.
