Minnesota Voters Turn Out in Record Numbers, Reject Trumpism
Minneapolis, MINN. (November 8, 2017) – Yesterday, Minnesotans turned out in communities across our state to elect a historically diverse slate of new local leaders for a variety of critical offices. Sierra Club North Star Chapter State Director Margaret Levin issued the following statement in response:
“Yesterday, Minnesota voters joined Americans from around the country in sending a clear message that the divisive politics of the Trump Administration will continue to be challenged at every turn.
The incoming Mayors, City Council members, School and Park Board members elected yesterday have tremendous opportunities ahead – to help Minnesotans move forward together as we pursue a just transition away from fossil fuels and toward the economy and communities of the future: clean, sustainable and inclusive.
We congratulate all of the winners in yesterday’s municipal election and look forward to close collaboration in the work ahead.”’
