An Important Step Forward

After 8 years of union busting, poor environmental votes, and a failure to take on Wall Street banks in the Attorney General's Office, it's time for an Attorney General who represents what the people want.

Andy Dawkins "wants to limit money in politics, protect private data and stop copper-nickel mining in northern Minnesota. He's been speaking out on civil rights, environmental issues and what he sees as the shortcomings of his former party...With six candidates in the attorney general race this fall, he's making the most noise in what is typically a quiet contest." [MPR]

As the Green Party of Minnesota-endorsed candidate for Attorney General, Andy demands equal justice for all. Click here for more information about Andy's positions, and here to join the campaign. Together, we can take an important step forward.

    "Essay: I'm running to represent the people, not the corporations. Corporations have too much power in our society on most important issues. They have their lawyers, we need ours. As attorney general, I seek to serve as a check and balance on this corporate power, to stand up to the Kochs, the Tony Haywards and Roger Goodells. Getting fair and equal application of the law, and restoring faith that decisions in the AG's office are based on what's best for Minnesota, requires independence from big corporate cash and big party politics. This is what I'm offering to provide."

      From the organizers:

      To Candidates for Attorney General

      The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, the NAACP of St. Paul, will be hosting a debate for the candidates for Attorney General on Thursday, October 30 from 6-8p.m. at the Hallie Q. Brown Center in St. Paul.

      As you know, the Attorney General is the chief legal officer in the state, including the authority to initiate legal actions for the enforcement of the civil laws in the state, the preservation of order, and the protection of the public rights. In addition, the Attorney General provides assistance to county attorneys in the criminal justice area.

      With such powers, the NAACP-St. Paul is interested in hearing from candidates on their thoughts and potential actions related to issues critical to the African American community in Minnesota. These issues include:

      • Prosecution and incarceration of African American males at a disproportionate level compared to other communities
      • Racial justice relating to police-community interaction and the militarization of local police
      • Gun violence prevention
      • Housing discrimination and mortgage redlining

      The event will be moderated by Yusef Mgeni and we will invite NAACP members and the general community to attend. The event will be marketed broadly to our members, the community at-large, and the media. We hope to call attention to these issues and your response should you be elected as Attorney General. We look forward to giving you the opportunity to share your thoughts and ideas on these critical issues.

      Sincerely,

      Jeffrey Martin

      President, NAACP-St. Paul
