“An Evening with the Chief Justice” hosted by the Gordon Rosenmeier Center for State and Local Government
Minnesota Supreme Court Chief Justice Lorie S. Gildea spoke at a public forum, with dozens of people in attendance, at the Chalberg Theater on the Central Lakes College campus in Brainerd on the evening of April 25.
Chief Justice Gildea’s presentation focused on the work of Minnesota’s justice system, the important role the courts play in preserving the rights and freedoms of citizens, and the critical need for an independent and impartial judiciary. Following her presentation, the Chief Justice held a question-and-answer session with forum attendees.
“The justice system truly belongs to the people it serves,” said Chief Justice Gildea to the forum attendees, “and it’s critically important that we hear from people in the community about what you think of the job we’re doing.”
The forum – “An Evening with the Chief Justice” – was sponsored by the Gordon Rosenmeier
Center for State and Local Government. The Rosenmeier Center is a non-partisan organization that strives to educate and encourage participation of citizens in effective government and the political process.
