Mole's Progressive Democrat

The Progressive Democrat Newsletter grew out of the frustration of the 2004 election. Originally intended for New York City progressives, its readership is now national. For anyone who wants to be alerted by email whenever this newsletter is updated (usually weekly), please send your email address and let me know what state you live in (so I can keep track of my readership).

    MINNESOTA FOCUS: Election Results

    Progressives did a little better than 50/50 in Minnesota last week. Here are the results from Progressive Majority's endorsed candidate slate:

    City Offices

    John Nephew, Maplewood City Council: Was elected by finishing second in a four candidate field.

    Tammie Yak, Moorhead City Council - Ward 1: Lost, finished third in a four candidate field.

    Melvin Carter, St. Paul City Council - Ward 1: Won with 58% of the vote. (A young, dynamic progressive, Carter's win was very important!)

    Pakou Hang, Moorhead City Council - Ward 1: Lost with 46% of the vote.

    School Boards

    Warren Harder, Anoka-Hennepin School Board - District 5: Lost with 42% of the vote.

    Kim Ross, Eden Prairie School Board: Was elected out of a seven candidate field.

    Janet Glover, Monticello School Board: Was elected but details not yet available.

    Pam Rykken, St. Louis School Board: Was elected by finishing first out of a seven candidate field.

    Kevin Riach, St. Paul School Board: Lost in a nine candidate field.

    Sue Stradtmann, West St. Paul School Board: Lost in a five candidate field.

    To build on these results, I strongly urge you to join Progressive Majority.

    To get involved on even more local levels, get involved with your local Democracy for Minnesota group. It's a great way to meet people, get to know your community and really affect local politics.
