Dear progressives, On Friday, August 25th my wife, Noelle DeHarpporte, and I are co-hosting with Ford Bell, Phil Willkie, Ron DeHarpporte, Ed Felien, and Tom Taylor, a party the DFL and labor endorsed candidate for U.S. Congress (5th District), Keith Ellison. (http://www.keithellison.org) It will be from 7pm - late at the beautiful Spot Art Gallery located at 1828 Marshall Street N.E., Minneapolis, right on the Mississippi River next to "Gabby's" restaurant (between Broadway and Lowry Aves NE). We will have refreshments and appetizers, and live music provided by the local great classic Country/Blues guitarist, Lonesome Dan Kase. You can view the flier about the event here: http://voteneumann.org/events.php?action=fullnews&id=71 Although I don't know Keith Ellison as long as some, I do know that at 42, he is a dedicated husband & father of four children, a civil rights attorney (he was executive director of the Legal Rights Center), an environmental justice leader (founder of E-JAM, Environmental Justice Advocates of Minnesota), a state legislator, and has a long history of community service working on issues including privacy, welfare reform, indigent defense, improving community-police relations, among many others. Keith Ellison currently represents House District 58B in North Minneapolis at the Minnesota State Legislature, one of the most economically, racially, and demographically diverse districts in the State. The principles of equality and fairness, and the values of social justice, ecology, democracy and peace have guided Keith Ellison to the unique intersection of being the DFL endorsed candidate for Congress and the candidate that transcends partisan boundaries. It is these values that we stand behind and why we support Keith Ellison for Congress. His commitment to the policies of peace, renewable/sustainable energy, universal health-care, and economic justice for all Americans will serve our district, nation, and future generations well. We have a rare opportunity to send someone from our community that will represent us in the spirit of the Wellstone tradition. Please come down to the beautiful Spot Art Gallery in lovely lower NE Mpls, Friday night, August 25th from 7pm - late in the eve, and hear for yourself directly from our next Congressmen, Keith Ellison. http://voteneumann.org/events.php?action=fullnews&id=71 If you have any questions call Anna from the Ellison campaign at 612.522.4416, or visit http://www.keithellison.org. And please forward this message widely.
