Don't Let Corporate Cash Buy this Election!

NotForSale.jpg

Anti-$15 corporate interests hosted a fundraiser for Ward 1 City Council member Kevin Reich, part of the council majority that voted to block $15/hr from Minneapolis voters in 2016. Co-hosts included Steve Cramer, president of the Downtown Council, an anti-$15 big business group, and Ted Grindal and Charlie Nauen, two of the lawyers from the firm hired by the Minnesota Restaurant Association to lobby against $15/hour. The city also hired their firm to block $15 from the ballot.

I fully support a $15/hr minimum wage, no carve-outs, no tip penalty - my campaign for Minneapolis City Council Ward 3 is not for sale. 

Elected officials cannot serve two bosses: they cannot unapologetically stand with working people while taking money from the very business interests lobbying to undermine workers’ rights.

Sign the petition: I don't want corporate money to buy our elections. It's time to take a stand: don't accept money from anti-$15 corporate interests!

    The people of Minneapolis, like all people, need and deserve elected officials who represent the interests of the working class rather than the interests of the ruling class.

    We need local control without interference from big business interests trying to influence our decisions here in Minneapolis.

    Any Minneapolis City Council-member who VOTED AGAINST $15 raise in minimum-wage, who BLOCKED refernedums to let VOTERS DECIDE on “malpractice insurance” for police (so,that the most ABUSIVE cops could be fired), who SUPPORTED shoveling hundreds of MILLIONS of dollars for Viking stadium we DON’T need while hundreds of units of LUXURY housing is built & HOMELESSNESS rises Should Be Voted OUT.
