Council Member Cam Gordon has been endorsed by TakeAction Minnesota, receiving an impressive 86% of the vote at the screening for Ward 2.
The mission of TakeAction Minnesota is to "unite the power of diverse individuals, communities, and organizations in active grassroots democracy that builds social, racial, and economic justice." It was formed in 2006 from the merger of two great progressive organizations, Progressive Minnesota and the Minnesota Alliance for Progressive Action (MAPA).
Cam was honored to receive the endorsement of the organization's predecessor, Progressive Minnesota, when he first ran for City Council in 2001. Though the organization declined to endorse any candidate from Ward 2 during the 2005 election, Cam has been a champion of the vision that he and TakeAction share: a state and city "dedicated to the principles of strong communities, democracy, and equal opportunity for all."
