I'm pounding the pavement to earn the support or organizations and community members because it's essential that the Northside is represented by someone who is willing to put in the work to build relationships across the community so that we can partner together to bring Northside voices to City Hall and so that you all can hold me accountable.
I'm so proud to have the support of these incredible organizations.
Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor PArty
At the beginning of this campaign we committed to doing something different. While we are celebrating the endorsement, we are still committed to running a campaign that champions all the people on the Northside, that brings new people into this process, and carries their voices to City Hall. The Northside can only move forward together.
MN neighborhoods organizing for change
"We are proud to make our first ever endorsement in Jeremiah Ellison for Minneapolis City Council, Ward 5!
Jeremiah’s ideas are both well thought out and aspirational. He has a clear and thorough understanding of the political process, and is committed to building access to democracy for everyone in the community. He’s dedicated to a robust community dialogue and he doesn’t settle even for bold ideas -- he presses to do more. His creative approach to problem-solving as an artist would be refreshingly welcome on the City Council and could help generate the creative solutions our city needs. Jeremiah’s vision is not about himself -- it’s about co-creating solutions for everyone in the community. We’re proud to offer NOC’s endorsement for his campaign for city council in 2017."

I'm especially honored to by endorsed by the nurses, who have been a leading member of the coalition to improve the lives of workers in Minneapolis (and across the state).
Endorsements don't win races, but when I think of who I want to build with, and who I trust to have the back of my neighbors -- Northsiders -- the nurses are definitely on that list.
