I believe in a politics that improves people’s lives and with that we can build a bright future for everybody in the state of Minnesota. When I think about our bright future, it of course includes the building blocks of strong public schools, single-payer health care, and jobs that will build the economy of our future. In a democracy, we must recognize that to live a full life you need a good education, healthcare you can count on, a safe place to live and a job to support your family.
But we can’t stop there and I won’t stop there because there are challenges in front of us that we must tackle. We have to take on climate change and pursue renewable energy options. We must confront the racial disparities that are holding Minnesotans and communities back. And we absolutely must protect the tools of our democracy that are under attack, like our ability to collectively bargain and organize, our access to the ballot box, and our ability to peacefully protest.
Some think that in order to win the next election, we must proceed forward with caution. I disagree because I believe that when we let Minnesotan’s know we’re fighting for them, they’ll join us. I’m standing up for an honest, progressive vision for Minnesota with people at the center. If you believe in this shared vision, then I hope you’ll join me.
