Secretary Simon's Statewide Tour Saves the Best for Last

November 20, 2015


"You can't do this job well, just sitting at some desk in St. Paul. We have too many partnerships, too many relationships around the state, and I've found by going to all 87 counties that the best ideas really do come from the rest of the state, all over the state."

Yesterday, Secretary Simon concluded his first statewide, 87-county tour as Secretary of State in Clay County. At one of his final stops, he discussed domestic violence prevention with the Rape and Abuse Crisis Center of Fargo-Moorhead. The visit was an opportunity for Secretary Simon to hear from an organization partnering with the Secretary's Safe at Home program, which helps protect victims of domestic violence and others who fear for their safety.
