After yesterday’s rally celebrating the end of the 2008 elections and welcoming Minnesota’s second Senator, Al Franken, Denise Cardinal, ABM’s Executive Director, shared the following note:
Yesterday, a huge crowd of Minnesotans came out and joined Keith Ellison, Betty McCollum, and Amy Klobuchar to finally welcome Minnesota’s second Senator to the job.
In case you couldn’t make it, here are a couple of photos:
Now that the wait for our second Senator is over, the real work begins. During Senator Franken’s speech, he called on Minnesotans to keep organizing and to keep holding their elected officials accountable.
Well, Alliance for a Better Minnesota plans on doing just that.
Over the next few years, we are going to face many challenges — including restoring the economy to make it work for middle-class families again, reforming our broken health care system, and solving the climate crisis.
We expect all of our elected officials, including Senator Franken, to fight for working families and not the special interests; to fight quality, affordable health care for every American; to fight for good-paying green jobs that can’t be shipped overseas; and to fight for an education system that truly leaves no child behind.
It won’t be easy, but with your continued support, we can rebuild the middle class and create a better Minnesota for working families.
