"As the first Somali-American legislator, I am proud to announce my endorsement of Phillipe Cunningham, who stands to become the first out transgender man of color ever elected to office in our county. More than just potential camaraderie in both being “firsts,” I believe in Phillipe’s leadership. I believe in him.
His experience as a teacher and youth worker sets him apart in City Hall already. Further, his time as Senior Policy Aide for the Mayor has provided him with the skills needed to navigate City Hall in ways that can make positive impact in his community. His vision is that of a thriving Northside - the same I hear from my Northside friends and family.
Phillipe is a progressive, equity-oriented candidate, and I urge all those who live in Ward 4 of Minneapolis to rank him as their first-choice candidate."
