For Immediate Release:
Jennifer Nguyen Moore Officially Files as Candidate for Ramsey County Commissioner, District 3
(St. Paul, MN) -- Today, I filed as a candidate for Ramsey County Commissioner in District 3! Throughout this campaign we have met so many residents who are hungry for change. Residents who are looking for an #AudaciousLeader who is bold. I am that bold leader, with an intersection of multiple lived-experiences and perspectives as a county service recipient, a mother, millennial and a daughter of Vietnamese refugees. I’m honored to be the leadership District 3 has been waiting for.
As your commissioner, I will be implementing fairness and equity in all policies and services. This means shifting resources to historically disinvested communities that are not limited to: lower income; lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, asexual (LGBTQIA), Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC), residents with disabilities, immigrant and refugee, renters and more.
There is so much to do to achieve equity. Equity to me means that we remove all barriers that were created by historical institutionalized oppression through policy and culture to ensure all residents in Ramsey County have access to all programs and services. I am the candidate best equipped to reach a just Ramsey County. My priorities will be create a zero-waste county and healthy communities that put reuse, composting, and recycling above burning garbage, fighting for $15 an hour to break the cycle of poverty, humanize the process of receiving county services and diminish racial disparities throughout our county, in our law enforcement, courts, jails, and probation services.
Thank you to all of our amazing volunteers for your dedication and getting us to this point. This campaign has been very intentional about who is involved in the team. Our team comprises of residents fairly new to the political process and are typically excluded from the process. Our team also comprises of women of color who plan to run for office or run campaigns in the future. This campaign is paving the way for future leaders of color.
The election is about 12 weeks away on Tuesday August 14, 2018. Please connect with us to see how you can contribute to our campaign. There are many ways to get involved, whether it be a donation, time and by voting. Every little bit that you dedicate will ensure our community #Thrives, not just survive.
Ramsey County District 3 includes dynamic neighborhoods in Falcon Heights and St. Paul: Como, Frogtown, Hamline-Midway, North End and Payne-Phalen.
