Taxpayers League of Minnesota
The Taxpayers League of Minnesota, a Minnesota-based taxpayer advocacy organization, releases a legislative scorecard for the Minnesota House of Representatives and Minnesota State Senate once a year. The scorecard gives each legislator a score based on how they voted in the prior legislative term on tax issues and “their efforts to balance the state budget without a tax increase.” The organization also compiles a legislator’s individual "Lifetime Score."
Pogemiller represents Minnesota Senate District 59. District 59 includes Western Minneapolis and the University of Minnesota.
Pogemiller is in a committed relationship and resides in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
