We’ve spent more than a year gearing up for November 7, Election Day. Now, it’s your time to be heard. When you head to the polls on Tuesday, I urge you to think about Minneapolis’ potential to be a progressive city that works for everyone. Government ought to be a force for good. It should make all of our lives better. I’m confident I can take us there.
You’ve heard from me directly on the doors, by phone, at house parties, over coffee, through my blog, at candidate forums, in emails, and from our mailings. Maybe you saw me at the Ward 11 DFL convention, where I received the most votes of any candidate. Or at the Pride Parade, marching with Minneapolis Firefighters Local 82. I am honored and humbled to see how our grassroots campaign has grown with the support of awesome supporters throughout Ward 11.
I believe in our ability to build a better future together. I know that, like me, you’ve chosen to lay down roots in Minneapolis not just because it reflects your values, but because this city holds the potential to be extraordinary. I will strengthen accountability, responsiveness and transparency at City Hall. I will work to implement equitable solutions to our biggest challenges, from affordable housing to police reform.
I am proud to have a diverse collection of endorsers standing behind me in this effort. Both the Star Tribune and Southside Pride newspapers named me their first choice for Ward 11. I’m excited to also have the support of the DFL Environmental Caucus, Our Revolution TC, and the Sierra Club North Star Chapter.
I’ve told you throughout this campaign what I plan to do to shape a better future for our community. (Feel free to revisit my specific policy priorities here, and learn more about my track record passing progressive policy here.) It’s up to you to make sure these visionary ideas become our new reality by making me your first-choice vote on Election Day.
