Seeing Green

Feature article in Pulse on Elizabeth Dickinson and Farheen Hakeem, mayoral candidates in St. Paul and Minneapolis, respectively.

Dickinson on the September 13 St. Paul primary election:

“I think the primary is winnable,” she said. “Certain things have to align right. We need incredible amounts of outreach so that people know who I am and what I represent. Nobody who supports me already can afford to sit back. They just can’t. If people want to see somebody like me in office, they have to donate money, they have to take a lawn sign, they have to talk to other people about me, they have to e-mail other people, they have to talk to their neighbors, they have to distribute literature—they must be involved. It has to be a grassroots thing.”
