WASHINGTON-- Our Revolution on Wednesday endorsed Raymond Dehn for Mayor of Minneapolis, Minnesota. Dehn’s campaign is also endorsed by the local Our Revolution group, Our Revolution Twin Cities.
“Now is the time for serious reform in Minneapolis. Raymond Dehn has the platform and vision to create a Minneapolis where every family can feel safe and have a good home and livable wage,” said Our Revolution President Nina Turner. “As state representative, Raymond championed workers’ rights and criminal justice reform. He will continue the work of the people as Mayor. We need leaders like Raymond Dehn to lead the push for police accountability, transparency and the restoration of community-police relationship which is vital to building a strong vibrant city one neighborhood at a time.
Born to a working-class family, Raymond believes that all Minneapolis residents deserve a voice in city government, not just the wealthy. He knows more affordable housing must be built in the city to meet demand and there must be an increase in the number of public housing residents serving on city boards and commissions.
Our Revolution supports progressive champions at every level of government. By supporting candidates backed by people, not corporations, we are aiming to transform American politics to make our political and economic systems responsive to the needs of working families.
