LETTER: Vote Walz-Flanagan

To the Editor:

I am writing in support of voting for Congressman Tim Walz and Rep. Peggy Flanagan in the Aug. 14 DFL gubernatorial primary. I think the Walz-Flanagan team has the best chance of reaching across our divisions and finding common ground with all Minnesotans, both metro and outstate. Yet, Tim is clearly a fighter, and we need a fighter to lead us in supporting our educators and farmers, and in pushing back against voter suppression and political corruption. 

Tim has represented southern Minnesota in Congress for over a decade, including on the House Agriculture and Veterans Affairs committees, after being an award-winning teacher and coach in Mankato for 20 years, serving as a veteran and teaching in China. Peggy, a lifelong Minnesotan, has impressive experience as an activist, family and healthcare advocate, legislator and Ojibwe member; she even trained Tim at Wellstone Action’s Camp Wellstone. Please consider supporting Walz-Flanagan and/or go to www.walzflanagan.org for more information. Thank you.

Laura Morton, West St. Paul
