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).

Location: Brooklyn, New York, United States

I am a research biologist in NYC. Married with two kids living in Brooklyn.

    MINNESOTA FOCUS: Blogs, The Minnesota Project, Drinking Liberally

    MINNESOTA 2010: I now have my Minnesota 2010 Act Blue Page up. Act Blue is a way for many small political contributions to add up to some serious political impact. For 2010 I am highlighting several Minnesota Democratic Party organizations, and highlighting the Minnesota secretary of state (to prevent election fraud!), as well as several potentially close House races, including some we need to defend (MN-1 and MN-5) as well as two very possible Dem pickups from absolutely horrible right wing extremist Republicans (MN-3 and MN-6). I particularly want to see Democrats do well in Minnesota because, in genral, I have found Minnesota Democrats (like Al Franken!) to be among the best in the country and Minnesota actually tends to be among the most progressive states when push comes to shove. Give a donation or two to keep momentum going.

    Hindsight from Minnesota 2020: Hindsight gives the run down on the news that jumps out at us on the issues that matter. Often times these stories show us how much further we need to go to have the progressive policy realized in Minnesota. Another thing we want to try here is opening up the discussion to everyone who wants to contribute. Commenting on our posts is highly encouraged, and we’ll join in as well. As always, be sure to check out our main site www.mn2020.org.


    The Minnesota Project is a nonprofit organization that connects people with policy to nurture collaborations that build strong local economies, vibrant communities and a healthy environment.

    Our programs are focused on clean renewable energy and efficient use of energy; farm practice and policy that promote profitable farms that protect the environment; and the production and consumption of local and sustainably-produced foods.

    The Minnesota Project works in ways that emphasize collaboration, community building, and capacity building. For over twenty-five years we have fostered local empowerment, bridged diverse interests, encouraged shared values, and initiated working dialogues that create positive action and policy.
