MINNEAPOLIS SIXTH WARD CANDIDATE WILL NOT PARTICIPATE AT THE DFL ENDORSING CONVENTION ON SATURDAY, MAY 20, 2017
Minneapolis, MN – Mohamud Noor candidate for Minneapolis City Council will not participate at the sixth ward endorsing convention due to potential safety risk for participants. We believe conducting the convention in hastily and non-transparent manner will cast a doubt on the credibility not only on the process but also the results.
This is the third attempt to schedule the convention after arrangements to hold it at two other venues failed. The Ward 6 Convention Planning committee passed resolutions on May 13th to cancel the convention with no endorsement. The committee, tasked with planning the convention, cited delegate safety and integrity of the electoral process as reasons for the recommendation. The delegates list provided by the Minneapolis DFL is invalid.
A press conference was held today at 11:30 AM at the Minneapolis City Hall Rotunda, to address the challenges presented to the Minneapolis DFL.
