Vote your conscience, vote DSA endorsed candidates

Election Day is this Tuesday. Twin Cities DSA has endorsed two candidates, one in a local race and one in a statewide race.

Andy Dawkins, who was a DFL State Representative from 1987 to 2002, is the Green Party endorsed candidate for Attorney General. He is facing incumbent Lori Swanson, who has a number of marks against her progressive record. See Andy's campaign site for all the information. There will be an election night party for Dawkins supporters 8pm, November 4, at O'Gara's Bar and Grill in Saint Paul.

Captain Jack (CJ) Sparrow is running against long-time DFL incumbent Peter McLaughlin for the position of Hennepin County Commissioner, District 4. Besides being an almost 30-year local activist in anti-poverty and homelessness issues and a 40-plus-year supporter of economic democracy in the form of cooperatives, CJ is a member of the DSA Local. His excellent campaign platform is propounded on his blog, Occupirate. He only wears the pirate costume for special appearances and demonstrations, by the way.
