Asking for your vote on the eve of election day
Dear friends and neighbors,
I began this campaign for city council with the support of a core group of you, and the stories I heard from people across the ward who expressed frustration with the status quo and a desire for a more pro-active, engaged and progressive sort of politics. I go into election day tomorrow tremendously grateful for the hundreds of you who joined my campaign since, for the encouragement I've encountered from all corners of Ward 2, and for the endorsements from Labor, TakeAction Minnesota and the Green Party.
I go into election day asking for your vote, and your help. I want your help to make sure that the election tomorrow is not the end of this journey, but just the beginning of our work together to move Ward 2 and Saint Paul forward.
- Partner to make change: We will work together on your ideas and concerns. I will be out in the neighborhoods, at meetings, and holding regular office hours at libraries and rec centers.
- Work together for good jobs: We will fight for workers and enforce our Living Wage standard. This year, Dave Thune authored a deal to give public money to a private business that refuses to pay a living wage to all workers. That wasn't right. I won't back away from our standards.
- Create a bolder vision: We will advance practical new ideas to tackle big problems, from affordable housing and foreclosures to the economy and small business. We'll build consensus for a bolder vision from the bottom up.
Will you join me?
I need your help to get out the vote. Please stop by campaign headquarters anytime today or tomorrow to pitch in and make it possible for us to take the next step forward tomorrow by winning this election. Volunteers like you will be dropping literature, knocking on doors, and making calls. Shifts tonight start at 4:30 and 9:30, and go all day tomorrow, starting at 6:30am.
Campaign headquarters is in the duplex at 608 E Beaumont Ave, just between Payne Ave and Swede Hollow, a little ways off of E 7th Street. Call my campaign manager, Jesse, if you have any questions: 651-442-5734.
P.S. After helping us get out the vote, join me for a victory party at Mancini's on West 7th Tuesday night at 9pm.
