Plymouth Area Indivisible
We have chosen to endorse candidates in two local races. In each case, we screened known candidates to determine if there was an active campaign. If there was an active campaign, we investigated to see if the candidate was obviously someone we would never support. This included and was limited to candidates who jumped into local races in order to support white supremacist or pro-Covid goals (anti-CRT, anti-masking, anti-vaccine). Of the remaining candidates, in the Minnetonka city races, we supplied a questionnaire.
In the case of the Wayzata School Board races, we deferred to a local group of leaders representing several hundred people in multiple progressive-leaning community organizations, including members of the school community, who carried out extensive and intensive screening of the school board candidates.
Other than the "anti" issues noted above, we chose candidates on the basis of their conformity to our values, as noted elsewhere on this page. Note, however, that not every candidate asked for screening, and there are probably good candidates that were not endorsed but might under different circumstances have been. Note also that in the Minnetonka city races, ranked choice voting is used.

Based in Minnetonka, Plymouth, and nearby cities, we are a grassroots organization encouraging citizens to be involved in the on-going work of representative democracy. Minnesota's strength comes from us being there for each other--bringing together people from different places and of different backgrounds to create community. For this to be a place where all of us can thrive, we cannot let a handful of politicians and the richest 1% divide us based on what we look like, where we come from, or how much money we have. We must pick leaders who see all of us as equal and govern for all of us, for generations to come. By joining together, we can make Minnesota a place where community, well being, and respect are for everyone, no exceptions.
