Cam Gordon —
City Council Member
I know that Peter will fight for our shared values like protecting the environment and people’s health, because I’ve been fortunate to work with him on these issues. He was instrumental in securing long-term funding for our parks and streets, protecting people from secondhand smoke, protecting workers with earned sick and safe time and one fair wage, and fighting climate change at the local level. He will be an effective, passionate leader in the legislature from day one.
LaTrisha Vetaw —
Minneapolis Park Board Commissioner At-Large
We know Peter will fight hard for our parks and for pedestrian and bicycle safety because he has done it already: passing the Complete Streets policy, building the bike network, starting Nice Ride and passing the 20 Year Parks & Streets Infrastructure Investment Plan. Peter is a progressive who gets results for our communities.
Bridget Ferguson —
Mpls. Public school parent and active community member
Peter attended Minneapolis Public schools. Peter wants all children to have the opportunities he had. He will be a fierce advocate for state funds for education from pre-school to higher education.
Scott Dibble —
MN State Senator (DFL-61)
Peter is the real deal. From affordable housing and transit to human rights to gun violence prevention, Peter is a leader for progressive change. His commitment to social and economic justice is unwavering.
Jose Velez —
Former co-worker & long-time friend
I’ve known Peter for many years. When Governor Pawlenty attacked the City of Minneapolis, Peter worked hard and strategically to push back. We can count on him to stand up for us. Peter knows how to build coalitions and he knows how to fight for our communities.
Lisa Bender —
City Council Member
I’ve worked with Peter for a decade and I know first hand that he is uniquely skilled at finding the connections between global problems like climate change and local solutions like transportation equity and environmental justice in our neighborhoods.
