MN AFL-CIO Endorsement

I am pleased to announce my endorsement by the Minnesota AFL-CIO. 

The MN AFL-CIO represents over 300,000 members and retirees including firefighters, nurses, teachers, the building trades, industrial workers, agricultural workers, and service and public employees. 

I am proud to support the work of the AFL-CIO to "improve the lives of working people-to bring economic justice to the workplace and social justice to our state and nation."

SEIU MN State Council Endorsement

I am pleased to announce that I have been endorsed by the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) State Council. 

SEIU represents 53,000 workers, and is the fastest growing labor union in Minnesota. Their members include hospital, clinic, nursing home and in home support workers ( SEIU Healthcare MN); public school and early childhood workers and university faculty (SEIU Local 284); commercial and public building maintenance employees and security officers (SEIU Local 26; and hospitality, commercial laundry, manufacturing and distribution workers (Workers United).

Thank you again, SEIU MN State Council, for your support.

What's your number?

We are getting close. I need only 4 more $50 contributions to meet the requirements to receive the public subsidy. Of course, over the course of this campaign, we'll need much more to get our message out.

So what does this election mean to you? How much are you willing to contribute to elect a candidate who supports your values?

About 188,000-roughly 15%-of Minnesota's children live in poverty. Is fighting poverty important to you?

Consider a donation of $188 to a candidate you know is committed to our greatest resource-our children-and to helping lift families up and out of poverty.

While graduation rates for students of color has improved slightly, there continues to be a significant opportunity gap between white students and students of color. Our state set a goal for every district to have a 90% graduation rate, with no student group falling below an 85% graduation rate. We have a lot of work to do to get there and our children, our schools and our teachers need support from the Legislature-and from you.

Why not donate $90 to a candidate who believes all children, regardless of their zip code, should receive a world-class education that will provide them the foundation for a successful life and help them become the leaders and innovators of tomorrow. 

Do you support sensible gun legislation, such as universal background checks? So do 82% of Minnesotans, 74% of gun owners and 71% of Republicans polled.

Consider a donation of $82 to let me know you, like the overwhelming majority of other Minnesotans, support common sense measures to address the epidemic of gun violence.

Do you have a different number in mind? Make a contribution today for an amount that represents something special to you, and tell me why that number is important.

And remember the most important numbers are 11/8. Vote.

MNA Endorsement

Today, the Board of Directors of the Minnesota Nurses Association (MNA) met and voted to endorse my candidacy for State Senate. I am deeply grateful for their support. 

I stand with the Allina nurses as they seek to retain their health benefits, improve patient safety through proper staffing and ask that workplace violence be addressed. For more information about the issues and the current strike, go the the MNA website.
