It’s time for citizens to band together and created their own destiny. Elected officials in the Twin Cities have neglected voters for far too long. Saturday’s Town Hall Meeting will deal with many issues concerning the 4th and 5th congressional districts (Minneapolis/St. Paul); what “a” city council should look like when representations of diverse communities are absent and how to vet citizens to run for office in their communities. This is a bi-partisan event and we ask all people from all walks of life to come and speak your mind. This is not a Tea Party event; this is a “We Party” event.

Minneapolis, MN (IBNN NEWS Politics/August 11, 2011)…The Minnesota Minority-Ethnic Political Caucus in collaboration with Winning Minnesota for Me | 2012 and Get Out of Our House (GOOOH) invite you to attend a Town Hall Meeting about local politics with an opportunity to discuss politics in Minnesota – more specifically the Twin Cities.
Citizens of Minnesota have seen a few catastrophic challenges in the last seven years that have not produced jobs or economic opportunities. In real time we could look at how local, state and federal elected officials handled F.E.M.A.’s denial of individual assistance for tornado victims in north Minneapolis and how the Minnesota Department of Transportation’s $715.00 contract award for Black contractors out of $68 million was okay with Local elected officials remain silent. Something’s got to give. Just a few examples, we all have some.
This event will take place on Saturday, August 13, 2011 from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Sunnyside Restaurant, located at 1825 Glenwood Avenue North in Minneapolis (the corners of Glenwood and Morgan). MAP
THIS IS A BI-PARTISAN EVENT, EVERYONE IS WELCOME!
Maybe the answer to a few serious issues in the Twin Cities is doing something different with the only power we (people of color in Minnesota) have, which is our vote. This is a part of the “New Revolution!”
This Town Hall Meeting will not be used as a platform to disrespect the president of the United States – but what will do is put a focus on elected officials in Minnesota’s 4th and 5th Congressional Districts who in our opinion have abandoned political success in favor of celebrity status.
Readers of IBNN NEWS know that this outlet is a focused on conservative political values while being an advocate for Black businesses, Black media, education, jobs and living the American Dream.
Some people in Minnesota say “everything is fine,” but we know that’s not the case. Those that say everything is fine are a part of a culture that has abandoned poor people in favor of peacock feathers with pomp and circumstance.
Proposed cuts to entitlements will hit middle-class and poor Americans especially hard. Now is the time to move away from all political plantations that have put us in this situation in the first place.
I’m not telling you to run out and signify your allegiance any Party – but what I am saying Minnesota’s political atmosphere has taken your vote for granted with dozens of examples that show the needs of the few, outweigh the needs of the many.
Changes…are you willing to take the steps to put you back in control of your political destiny?
Sunnyside restaurant will offer a $9.99 Breakfast Buffet during the meeting and we invite you out to buy breakfast and support Black business. There is no charge to attend the event, it’s free and open to the public. Your only charge will be what you order for breakfast.
The Town Hall Meeting will be a first in s series of monthly meetings starting August 13th with a large Town Hall Meeting to be held later in fourth quarter.
If you are not a registered voter, there will be voter registration cards available for you to fill out and mail at each Town Hall Meeting.
