Thank you, Ilhan, for your warm introduction. This the largest group I’ve ever spoken to. I never thought I’d be where I am today. I wake up every morning grateful to be a candidate running for Mayor. I believe the success of our city means listening to each other’s stories. I’d like to tell you mine.
I am Ilhan Omar—I have the pleasure of representing some of you at the State Capitol. First, I want to thank you all for being here. This the biggest convention we do in Minnesota! I had the pleasure of chairing the City Convention in this exact room, four years ago, the last time we had a Mayor’s race.
