Fantasy Legislature Team Page: Marble Madness

Minnesota Public Radio

Gold League

Manager: Brian Simon

I'm here to learn more about MN politics. After getting into federal politics, I know little about the MN scene, and will use the fantasy legislature to learn more.

Team strategy: My roster was thrown together with a minimum of research. The primary qualification I sought was years of service, on the premise that the longer someone has served, the more likely they are to craft legislation that will get votes. I intentionally did not pick the formal leaders, as they're more likely to be managing than writing legislation - at least to my neophyte thinking. The secondary qualification I used was name recognition, which is less reliable, as Rep Olson's name has been much publicized lately, but not due to his prowess at legislating.
