"At a time when fatigue about politics can elicit a heads-in-the-sand “here we go again,” Wittorf is a breath of fresh air."

Restoring our trust in politics

adam faitek, Southwest Journal

"As a state representative, policy is important, but what matters most is a combination of vision and leadership style. Meggie best represents the visions of our neighbors and has long track record of leading by building relationships and bringing new voices to the table."

LTE: A woman's voice

ANN TOBIN, DAVID BOOTH | SW JOURNAL

"We are supporting Meggie because of the combination of her business acumen, her history of effective advocacy and her ability to get things done. We need Meggie's voice at the Capitol. She will advance an agenda focused on economic equity and advocacy that will benefit those of us who live in 61B and all Minnesotans."

LTE: A vision for change

TODD SCHUMAN | SW JOURNAL

"I pass by Justine’s memorial nearly every day — a constant reminder of the tragic consequences that can result when our justice system falls short of expectations. It compels me to work toward a Minnesota where something like this can never happen again, one where every resident feels safe calling the police when they are in trouble and the police treat every individual with dignity and respect without feeling like they are constantly under threat. This is my vision, and I know that Meggie shares this vision too."

Why Getting Involved in Local Politics is More Important Than You Think

liz welle, Wit & dELIGHT

"It’s important to reflect on if that’s happening in your own community. We saw similar sentiment presented in our Minnesota legislature; from attacks on women’s health care to our right to protest."

The intersection of Meggie's progressive advocacy work and business experience will make her a valuable leader in the legislature. We're inspired by Meggie's vision for investing in women and families. Tackling job equity, education funding, criminal justice, and reproductive justice will benefit all of us.

Meggie believes that important decisions for our city shouldn’t just be left to politics as usual, and that a community that works together is stronger together.

I am excited to caucus for Meggie Wittorf on Feb. 6 because she has a track record of showing up, leading and getting things done. At the doors, on the phones and in neighborhood meetings, nobody has to guess what kind of leader Meggie will be because she shows us in action.

I met Meggie seven years ago when we worked together at General Mills. A successful career is driven by innovative thinking and a passion for team work. Meggie excelled at both and was a great business partner.

Meggie envisions a Minnesota that embodies many of the ideals of my American dream. Her plans on affordable housing, green job creation, equitable education, and single payer healthcare create a society where every individual is included.

As an educator and business-person, I appreciate that Meggie knows that our ability to deliver on the promise of a strong educational experience for ALL Minnesota students is the cornerstone of our state’s economy. 

SUSIE CROUSE

Meggie is not an insider politician as usual. Meggie is our neighbor, our local business leader and an equity advocate. It is so energizing to find a candidate who has the moxie to combine economic growth with doing what is right for the environment.

Meggie isn’t afraid to think big - so long as she has a plan for how we’ll achieve that vision and ensure that no student falls through the cracks.

Meggie realizes that for community to thrive, community needs to participate. She’s mobilized and led an energetic and grassroots movement of neighbors leading neighbors, bringing together first time convention goers and longtime DFLers.

TIM HERBY

I’ve seen her build an incredible coalition of neighbors who were inspired by her vision for a better Minnesota.
