Campus Rally

Join the MN Green Party as we march across the University of Minnesota Campus!

We’ll start on the corner of Fulton St. and Oak St. SE at 10:30am. From there we’ll walk through the east bank campus area, make our way to the Washington Ave. bridge at 11:00am and then finish on the West Bank in front of the Humphrey Institute around 11:30.

We have signs and buttons, so all we need are energetic and enthusiastic participants! Will you join us?

Please contact Dan with any questions. 763-639-7303 | dan@dancraigie.com

Debates

We’re happy to announce that two debates have been scheduled for District 59B candidates. Both debates will feature all four candidates.

The first debate is Tuesday, October 19th at 6:00pm. The debate will be held at Willey Hall on the University of Minnesota campus in room 125. It is scheduled to last approximately 75 minutes and is open to the public. The debate is sponsored by Collegians for a Constructive Tomorrow, a student group at the University of Minnesota. Light refreshments will be provided.

The second debate is Wednesday, October 27th at 6:30pm and will feature candidates for the MN Senate as well. The debate will occur on the University of Minnesota campus with a specific location to be determined shortly. There will be a short break during the debate to allow candidates to engage students and community members. As with the first debate, it is open to the public. The debate is hosted by the Minnesota Student Association, Graduate and Professional Student Assembly, Minnesota Daily, and Minnesota Public Interest Research Group. It will also be streamed live on the Minnesota Daily website.

I’m looking forward to having as many supporters in attendance as possible, so save the dates! If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at info@dancraigie.com

Please check back shortly for an update on the location of the second debate.

4 Weeks

As we look back over the past year, it’s hard for this campaign to really appreciate what has been accomplished in a relatively short period of time. We essentially started with nothing and here we are a year later, with so much to be proud of and just 4 weeks left to Election Day.

Along the way, we’ve received unanimous endorsement from the Green Party, coordinated a successful campaign kick-off, marched in the Twin Cities Pride Parade (and lost a voice or two along the way), received ballot access by submitting more that the required amount of signatures, raised almost $6,000 in individual contributions (more than any other candidate in this race thus far), and will be approaching 6,000 doors knocked very soon. Absolutely none of this could have happened without you. I cannot express my gratitude in words, but please know how appreciative I am of your support.

It’s hard for me to ask any more of you, but that’s exactly what I’m going to do. The motive for doing so has very little to do with our campaign, but rather it’s the voters I’ve had the immense pleasure to speak with over the past 7 months. It might be somewhat cliché for a candidate to tell stories about interactions with residents of their district, but it’s the only way I can really explain how much energy and optimism we have right now.

I recently had a very deep and personal conversation with a constituent about the difficulties of being a single parent and trying to raise her son on her own. Without going into much detail, after a lengthy conversation, we shared few tears and she sent me off with a hug and her vote.

Experiences like this illustrate my deep desire to represent this district.

This is what I’m asking: a few nights over the next 4 weeks to help spread the energy and optimism that is this campaign. Whether it’s knocking on doors, attending upcoming events, or talking to students on campus, your help is vital for victory on November 2nd. If you can’t dedicate your time, financial contributions are just as helpful. Whether its literature, advertising, or supplies, your financial support allows us to reach thousands of voters. Visit my website for information on volunteering and to donate or you can mail a check to the address below. Checks can be addressed to “Dan Craigie for Public Office.”

Again, thank you for what you’ve already done and I’m looking forward to an amazing finish.

With all the hope and optimism that one campaign can have,

Sincerely,

Dan Craigie

A letter of support from Minneapolis City Council Member Cam Gordon

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

First, I want to thank you for giving me the opportunity to serve you and all the people of the Second Ward as your City Council Member. I am grateful for that honor.

I am writing now to call your attention to another political campaign. This year the people of State Legislature District 59B have a real choice to make. This year they have a chance to change the face of the Minnesota legislature and to bring a new voice and new energy to the table.

I am proud to help introduce you to Dan Craigie, Green Party endorsed candidate for the Minnesota House of Representatives, District 59B.

If you live in 59B, you may have already met Dan as he has been campaigning throughout the district. He has knocked on thousands of doors. There is great energy in this campaign and as we move into the fall, I want everyone to get a chance to know him and understand what he offers the people of 59B. Even if you are not a resident living in the district I believe this campaign might be important to you.

Dan understands how important it is to connect to his constituents. He knows how vital it is to be focused on the future even as we solve the tough problems we face today. Dan will base his decisions on our priorities and on our shared principles of social justice, ecological wisdom, nonviolence, and grassroots democracy.

Dan is building a strong coalition of supporters throughout the district and his message is resonating in the community. People are ready for the Green vision he offers and the enthusiasm he has for listening to people and bringing our progressive values to the state capitol.

In order to do this, Dan needs our help. You can start by getting to know him and his campaign. Visit his website at www.dancraigie.com where you can find information about Dan, his policy platforms and information on how to send him an email or call his campaign and have direct contact with him.

If you are so inclined you can get more involved and join the effort by volunteering your time and by using the remittance envelope to send a contribution. You can help most, if you live in 59B, by voting for Dan on November 2nd.

As I have gotten to know Dan, I have become increasingly excited about the possibility of bringing a fresh, Green voice into state government. I hope you will be as well.

Sincerely, in peace and cooperation,

Cam Gordon
