To the editor:
After watching the two debates between Senate District 8 candidates Michele Anderson and Bill Ingebrigtsen, it is clear how much we need Anderson to represent us. During the debates, Anderson demonstrated her understanding of a wide range of topics from Minnesota’s rural economy, to COVID-19, to Minnesota’s racial disparities. She centers on each issue instead of deviating into partisan talking points.
Anderson speaks on issues that myself and my community experience and care deeply about: How climate change and racial disparities are real existential threats, how the state’s COVID pandemic response is much more than just “doom and gloom and scare tactics,” and how mass protests against police violence demands that we reconsider the way law enforcement treats civilians. Ingebrigtsen has shown that he does not even recognize these as issues.
Anderson is a proven leader who is committed to equity and justice for all. She cares deeply for her community and I know she will provide for our district. This November, I am voting for Michele Anderson for Senate District 8 and I hope you do too.
