anyone know what O means?

My rep is listed as O

“O” Means No Vote

It means no vote-they may have abstained or simply not voted.

Thanks, Joe

I figured it was something like that. I used the Vikings web site the other day to find my rep and left a voice message for her letting her know how displeased I was with the government-paid stadium. Considering Dayton’s support for it, I guess a democrat who abstains is better than the alternative.

Minneapolis votes

According to my count, the only Minneapolis representatives voting to approve the bill were Champion and Thissen (the latter who will move into my district next year).
