The Citizens League is a nonpartisan think tank based in the Minneapolis-St. Paul metropolitan area of Minnesota. It was established in 1952 as a good government advocacy and policy group.
The first Citizens League board of directors was elected on February 14, 1952; the League's first president was Stuart Leck. Dues were $5.
In the past 65 years, the Citizens League has had only seven executive directors: Ray Black (1952–1958); Verne Johnson (1958–1967); Ted Kolderie (1967–1980); Curt Johnson (1980–1991); Lyle Wray (1992–2003); Sean Kershaw (2003–December 1, 2017); Pahoua Yang Hoffman (present).
