I just wrapped up another night of important conversations.
Over the past several months, I’ve had the opportunity to talk with some of the most active and engaged voters in the city about our campaign’s vision for Minneapolis. I've had the opportunity to learn from this diverse set of residents from across the city about the issues that most impact their lives. In the course of those discussions, I clearly hear three common themes discussed as we seek solutions to bridge our next generation in Minneapolis.
Opportunity. Engagement. Justice.
Opportunity. Engagement. Justice. Whether we’re talking about the affordable housing crisis, policing, small business, standing up for our immigrant community, or just being the clear and visible leader this city needs, the people of Minneapolis are interested in plainly articulated solutions to the problems we all face.
Minneapolis needs to a clear vision as we set the course for our future. In the lead up to the Minneapolis DFL Convention, I’m going to be highlighting the real, substantive policy positions that make up our platform. In the coming days, I’ll focus on each of the themes above and expand on our big vision for a better city. Together, we can create the type of progressive community that serves as a model for the rest of the country.
