Meet Mohamud Noor
My name is Mohamud Noor and I am running to represent you on the Minneapolis City Council. I am writing to you today to share my vision for Ward 6 and ask for your support. We live in challenging times and we deserve unitive and responsive leadership.
Council Member Warsame has failed to represent all residents of Ward 6 during the last three and a half years. He has failed to hold any listening sessions during his time in office and has failed to adequately push for progressive policies. Council Member Warsame hasn’t pushed hard enough of issues like: raising the minimum wage, police reform, LGBT rights and climate change. Ward 6 needs a change.
As the Director of the Confederation of Somali Communities I understand the importance of listening to everyone. I have worked in the community to get access to existing benefits for over 4,000 families by listening to family’s needs and problems solving. I believe that inclusive governing can only happen with responsive and engage representatives. I pledge to put residents first and to be open to all perspectives.
As a father of four children, I see how the achievement and opportunity gaps are a fundamental threat to our democracy and economic growth. I want the American Dream available to everyone. As a former Director of the Minneapolis School Board for District 3, I believe all children deserve an equal opportunity to succeed in life.
I will focus on being a progressive leaders that Ward 6 has lacked over the last three and a half years. As your City Councilmember, I will focus on inclusive governing, racial equity, a fair wage, affordable housing and sanctuary for immigrants and refugees. I am ready to take on the challenge of resisting the bully in the White House and ensuring that Minneapolis is the first, and strongest line of defense.
We can’t afford to wait for racial, economic, environmental and social justice. We need a City Councilmember that will represent the residents of Ward 6 and their values. Please consider voting for me early or in person Tuesday November 7th.
