March 16, 2017 MINNEAPOLIS, MN — This week, Minnesota Nurses Association (MNA) endorsed Raymond Dehn for Mayor of Minneapolis.
"Representative Dehn shares nurses’ beliefs and vision for healthcare as a human right for all," said MNA President Mary Turner.

“I am honored to receive Minnesota Nurses Association’s endorsement,” said Ray. “I have always stood, marched, and striked alongside Nurses. Minneapolis faces critical health issues, from health care coverage to the public health epidemics of gun violence and substance addiction. MNA has a history of fighting for their patients, and it will be a privilege to continue working with them as the next Mayor of Minneapolis.”
