Our Revolution National Endorses Raymond Dehn for Mayor of Minneapolis
AUGUST 3, 2017 MINNEAPOLIS — This week, Our Revolution National announced they are endorsing Raymond Dehn for Mayor of Minneapolis.
“It's time for real criminal justice reform in Minneapolis. Raymond Dehn for Minneapolis championed police accountability as state representative, and as mayor he'll lead on de-militarizing police and training police in de-escalation. We're proud to endorse his campaign for Mayor,” said a statement from the national organization.
“I’m proud to receive Our Revolution’s endorsement alongside other progressive champions, Andrea Jenkins and Jillia Pessenda,” said Ray. “To ensure change in Minneapolis, we must elect leaders willing to challenge the status quo and put those purposefully left-behind in the forefront. Our Revolution has inspired tens of thousands across the nation to get more informed about local politics, and organize for progress.”
Raymond Dehn, a fourth-generation Northsider and University of Minnesota graduate, is a three-term State Representative serving District 59B, which includes the Northside, Bryn Mawr, North Loop, Elliott Park, and Downtown. During his time at the Capitol, he has raised the minimum wage, championed bipartisan criminal justice reform, and expanded access to healthcare. He lives in the Jordan neighborhood of Minneapolis.
