DFL Unions Target Crystal and New Hope for Power Grab

Well as predicted here local races are about to become even more partisan as Minneapolis unions are sticking their noses in city elections in Crystal and New Hope. They are holding their second event in three months on Monday, February 26.

Now you may be asking yourself: why are Minneapolis Unions getting involved in these races? When it comes to Crystal we know why. That’s a city union friends used to run. Now they don’t own anyone expect Johnny B and the unions want their power back. They want “yes men” in office and are willing to spend money to get it. This isn’t about a better Crystal or a better New Hope. This is a bull session on how to get power. Expect the usual 30 or so people to show up: ReNae Bowman, Joe Selton, Mark Hoffman, Johnny B and a handful of union folks with their workers’ checkbooks. Expect the personal agendas of former council people to be talked about. Expect the Crystal city council to be trashed at every turn by this hate-filled group. My guess is that New Hope isn’t talked about at all.

Folks, I share this to show what we said was going to happen is happening. The DFL doesn’t control one city and they are upset about it. It also shows me that they’ve learned nothing from the past three elections cycles. These folks didn’t lose because they weren’t DFL enough or they didn’t support unions enough. Of course I know why they lost but if they aren’t smart enough they to figure that out by now they never will. Go ahead get your union endorsement like you guys did last time. It won’t work but we will have fun watching. Also you can count on us to let you know who is bought and paid for by a Minneapolis union in a Crystal election.

In the mean time, let’s all go and have pizza on the DFL Monday night! See you there!
