I did another interview with Native Roots Radio Tueaday. My interview begins around the 2 minute marker. It’s not often I get to say my traditional Ojibwe Introduction outside of class so I’m excited to share this.

Did you know I took Japanese for nearly 5 years and have been learning Ojibwe for two? I am fascinated by languages and passionate to learn them all. I’ve already found resources for simple Karen translations and I’m always willing to invite translators or work to communicate in your preferred language the best I can.

The Parks & Recreation Commission wants input from Indigenous community members providing their perspective on Pocahontas Park. While all input is welcome, the Commission agreed this is an opportunity to listen to non-dominant cultures and have their voices recognized.

All Commission members agreed that renaming this park is a fairly obvious end goal but they need support from the community to do so. No deadline was discussed but I will continue to post updates.

Information for residents interested in participating in a virtual City Council meeting.

Neighbors,

Today the Parks and Recreation Department is speaking on the name of Pocahontas Park. While there is no intended action following this discussion, I hope it pushes the city to change it’s name.

Pocahontas Park is troublesome for several reasons. First, it contributes to Pan-Indianism and erases the histories of the tribes who actually lived in MN. A more appropriate name would honor Native Americans important to Minnesota State history. Pocahontas’ real name is Matoaka and if we so feel the need to honor her, do it through her given name. Furthermore, she is not from MN but the West Coast, daughter to Chief Powhatan of the Mattaponi Tribe.

Lastly, and the biggest issue with glorifying her story is that she is considered the first victim of human trafficking. Kidnapped by English settlers, her father thought it may bring peace between his tribe and the settlers, as was fairly custom in peace negotiations between tribes. Her abduction was not negotiated and we know any negotiation for peace would have been done in bad faith.

You can attend the Parks and Recreation Commission meeting TONIGHT at 6:30 by registering here: https://cityofroseville.com/3454/Attending-a-Virtual-Meeting

Public comment will begin shortly after 6:30.

I encourage anyone working with their community garden to read through the information here: https://www.ramseycounty.us/residents/health-medical/public-health-initiatives/statewide-health-improvement-partnership-ship/garden-funding-opportunity

In Native Communities we discuss food sovereignty a lot, but I think it is also an important community conversation locally. As we’ve seen with inept Federal leadership and Roseville having no food shelves, supporting our community means working together, expanding community gardens (or personal gardens), and utilizing them to get food to those in need!

Good news! Today the City Council approved several recommendations by the Human Rights Inclusion and Engagement Commission including a Diversity and Inclusion Consultant!

The City Manager also presented his budget recommendations for 2021. The Roseville Police Department requested increased funds for three additional officers, but the City Manager only recommended funding for the City’s commitment to a diversity inclusion officer. While we have seen that diversity does not necessarily mean problems with police brutality are removed, I am happy this recommendation does not result in 3 additional officers, and it also challenges the City to review the RPD’s caseload and how to create policies, if any, that can assist in reducing policing.

The next budget meetings are September 14th: Council Members will receive recommendations from the Finance Commission and

September 21st, where the Council will preliminarily adopt the budget. Mark your calendars!

Authorities are investigating a number of instances in which Black Lives Matter signs were stolen or damaged in Roseville. But police became even more concerned when someone nailed a raccoon up to a post near one of those signs.

Neighbors, it has been brought to my attention something disgusting happened in Roseville. If you can help identify those responsible, that would be greatly appreciated. The direct and insinuated racism is unacceptable to me and much of the community I know personally. My understanding is the RPD didn’t increase their patrols following the initial threats of burning down houses so of course the threats have turned into some action. I don’t expect you to go to the cops with info, but if we know who is responsible we can hopefully address this in a different capacity.

Neighbors,

The Roseville Police Department has requested the addition of three officers in the year 2020 and another three officers in 2021. The RPD cites a 158% increase in crime at Rosedale Mall, a 75% increase in crime at the Walmart, and a 65% increase of crime near three of our various hotels. Yet, part of their ask is due to their increased ineffectiveness. Due to the demand in their volume, they have had to reduce DWI enforcement, reduce responses to gas drive-offs, and found animal calls are holding for longer, all while seeing a decrease in case clearance.

The media (Star Trib & Pioneer Press), like the RPD, focus on the ‘Crimes Against Persons’ statistics, meaning assault, rape, and robbery. The RPD claims a 74% increase in aggravated assaults; 81% increase in crimes against persons; and a 100% increase in sexual assaults. When you look at the actual data, in 2010, the caseload was slightly below 250 cases in a year, and as of 2017 continue to hover around 250 cases. Our caseload is on par with the rest of the state of MN.

However, when you review the stats on Property Crimes (burglaries and thefts), which RPD states a 35% and a 20% increase respectively, the number are obvious: in 2010 RPD handled about 4,500 cases and in 2017 that number jumped to about 5,500, or 3,000 more cases than the State of MN overall.

When I looked over these numbers, I realized what the Roseville Police Department is requesting is not for protection of our community but rather, protection for Capitalism and the many national chain stores that operate out of Rosedale.

When looking at the RPD’s response to increased crime, the examples I listed above, do not seem to be detrimental to the RDP. Why is the RPD having to respond to drive-offs at the gas pumps? What are our convenience stores doing to deter drive-offs themselves? Why are their pumps not pre-pay only? Again, why is RPD being called in to protect Capitalism, when they could actually be focusing on proactive measures to protect its residents? I think it is worthwhile to mention here, that RPD also has a ‘bait car program’ to ‘deter’ theft. How are you deterring a crime you are creating? Why are we focusing on this task/method, when we should be handling the calls already in front of us?

Roseville has partnered with Ramsey County to assist with some of their calls yet it is unclear how often they are involved and what the result of their involvement is. In 2018, Roseville responded to 1,372 Disorderly Conduct calls. Yet RPD also responded to 679 welfare checks and 209 calls where the person was in crisis. Mental Health seems to be the second most need, so there is a clear need for more involvement with Mental Health Professionals and a system which truly helps, and not criminalizes, the victim.

The next budget meeting for the City of Roseville, where you can state your concerns is July 21st at 6PM. With all of this data, and the recent events which unfolded in Minneapolis and St. Paul, do we really need more police? Do we want more police? Please show up and express your concerns!

Here is a link to RPD’s presentation: https://www.cityofroseville.com/DocumentCenter/View/27605/RPD-Staffing-Presentation_12819 and here’s a link to the RPD data that they have currently collected: https://www.cityofroseville.com/3314/Transparency-Data-Sharing

If you'd like to help in another way (food, supplies, housing, clean up) also, please reach out to me and I can connect you with others who are already organizing and know where you'd be most effective (and most needed). 

Lastly, I said it personally but I'll say it here too. The events of the last week have been hard for all of us, but I take a message of hope from the community we saw coming together. With it, many things are becoming possible and we must hold that momentum on all levels!

What is happening in the Twin Cities is what happens when you invest in profits over people year after year after year. It’s what happens when you had a chance to vote for someone who would make a difference, and you go with the pro-condo guy.

This is what happens when the responses to ‘no justice no peace’ are said in vain.

It has been five years since Philando was killed and five years we’ve been waiting for something to change. It has not. Please do not decide now to use your voice to police black and brown bodies on how to get the killings to stop. You had a voice you should have been using all along.

I posting this to my campaign page because we need to take a stand. I’m asking to lead YOU and I want to be transparent in where I stand, what I believe. I am here to answer questions and concerns you have. I am here to defend my stance and defend those fighting for justice, but I refuse to be silent and ‘pander’ in whatever visibility I might have.

Yes, there has been day after day of sadness and tragedy, but this is the moment we must all ask ourselves what we value more, people or profit?

Now that we’ve had some time to process the murder of George Floyd I want to offer my official statement on the matter. I first ran for City Council on 2018 at the heels of a ‘not guilty’ verdict of Yanez, the officer who shot and murdered Philando Castile. I was outraged, I was tired, and I knew it was my responsibility to do whatever I could to change the systems that be. Even though I am in Roseville and we have an independent police force, I vowed that wherever I reside, I have to do what I can to ensure the lives of our communities are protected, and what happened in STP or MPLS will never happen in Roseville.

During my campaign, my cousin was shot and murdered by St. Paul police. While I tried not to bring up my cousin specifically, so I can focus on the larger problem, I then swore my cousin’s death would be the last, because we would change the system once and for all.

Then Ralph Bell went missing, in my City, under mysterious circumstances, and justice still hasn’t been made concerning the circumstances of his death. Neither the Roseville Police Deparemt nor the Stillwater Police Department seriously handled their investigation due to ‘jurisdictional issues’.

Here we are today, again heartbroken. I look at George’s face and I see my cousin, I see Philando, and I see countless other men and women killed by senseless police brutality.

My love goes out to all the family and friends of George; to the community where George called home, to those all throughout the nation mourning his murder. I mourn with you all and I am holding space for everyone.

I reiterate my previous campaign goal if I were elected: I will do whatever I can in Roseville first and foremost to ensure we never have this issue, but secondly, to apply pressure to our surrounding cities to be proactive and do the same.

Nobody who has died from police violence should be dead today. We have a Justice system for this very reason, in which cops were never part of the original plan and they have now monopolized that power. Who we choose to vote for in November- regardless of where you reside, affirms or denies whether you support the monopolization of police power and brutality without consequence. It is unacceptable and I refuse to accept that as the status quo. I am begging, if you are reading this, please DO something. Protest, write, call, help the activists and victim’s families with the support they need. Have the tough conversations with your neighbors and don’t stop. Don’t agree to disagree. Use your voice. Speak up where black and brown people cannot. Empathize. Get past your semantic arguments please, and champion the importance of life for the miracle it is and do not give in to the police supremacy. Most importantly, do not stop until we see the changes and benefits of those changes. Do not be appeased by mere promises. Follow it through and hold the electeds accountable.

The Council positions are typically nonpartisan, but I am seeking the endorsement to be upfront about my policy goals and also to ensure those who do not have the time or ability to research candidates can know upfront where I stand.

I look forward to hearing what is important to you as I continue to reach out to voters!

Your support of nonprofits and schools makes our communities better, whether you're giving $10 or $10,000!

During COVID-19 a lot of us are struggling. Whether emotionally, physically, or financially. So are our students. Please support Roseville Area Schools and are students by taking the time to give today and ensure our students needs are being met.

From the Roseville Area Schools:

With the rise of COVID-19, the needs of the Roseville Area School District are growing and ever changing. This pandemic is exposing and heightening inequities across our community. For many students and families, our schools are their only reliable source of food. Even more, do not have access to the internet and the technology necessary to learn from a distance. Our teachers and administrators are working tirelessly to implement distance learning, provide families with free meals and the resources they need to learn, but they need help.

The Roseville Area Schools Foundation is committed to support our schools during these challenging times, which is why we have pledged $20,000 to the district to support the urgent needs of Roseville Area students and families.

With your help, we can double, even triple our donation to support those in need. Your donation will give our schools the capacity to effectively implement distance learning, address food insecurity, and continue to meet the needs of all students and families.

We understand that many are not in a position to give right now, as folks have lost their jobs, taken in displaced family and friends, and even fallen ill. We are thinking of all of you experiencing hardships during this time.

If you are in a position to give, please consider doing so today.

Donate now to #RosevilleRelief to keep our kids fully fed, connected, engaged and learning!

Next week there will be hearings to expand renter protections at the State level. A pivotal part of my plan to address our housing crisis and homelessness in Roseville is expanding renter protections. We have landlords operating with fairly little oversite- other than inspections- who can bully and terminate contracts seemingly at will. The process for contesting these terminations, if they happen at all, strain those living in poverty and working jobs without flexible schedules.

If you are able, please attend these hearings to show your support. If you are unable to attend, please site to let your House Representatives know you support expanding protections for renters.

I am glad to see City officials acting swiftly to protect renters’ quality of life. It is important to hold Landlords accountable especially when jeopardizing the health of its tenants while simultaneously not living up to their side of the contract.

Because city inspections can easily be skirted and companies take short cuts hoping to save a penny, it is important that renters report any issues they may have with their landlords to the City.

When I decided to run for City Council, it was a spur of the moment decision - one I debated for only two days before the deadline passed. I ran for so many reasons all culminating to this decision: the 2016 elections; realizing all the work my friends were doing would never really end unless we had policy changes; and my own personal experiences with my mom being homeless - and her cats. As I sat on my couch googling for hope, I stumbled upon the Roseville page with the deadline to file for office. It was a perfect storm that lead me to where I am today. I realized, while I don't have much to offer one thing I could do is run. 

With the final results in, I will not be moving on to the Council, but I am so proud of how well I did as a new resident of Roseville and having no campaign experience at all. I made several mistakes in the beginning, but I still did better than I ever could have imagined! I moved up one entire position since the primaries more than doubling the votes I received, and  I ran a campaign I could be proud of - one based on the issues and positivity. Most importantly, I never forgot why I was doing this - my community. 

The support I received from residents, family, and friends is truly humbling and  I couldn't have done so well without the support of you all. From the encouragement, to the door knocking (sometimes at night, in the rain, alone), to showing up to my events, thank you all! I ran for the community and it was the community who showed up and got behind me, helping me through my doubts and moments of fear.  I also have to thank my company and co-workers for supporting me as well. They contributed to my campaign, put my sign in the office, and allowed me to use my vacation time to prep for the forum. It takes a village and that is what my campaign was all about. 

So once again THANK YOU all! Hard to be upset about my loss when we had so many wins last night! I wish the best of luck to our NEW Council Member Wayne Groff and the incumbent victor, Bob Willmus! I look forward to continuing my work within our community and always moving forward.

As a council member, I will prioritize people over business and make policies which respect our residents & prioritize their needs. Currently our residents pay more in property taxes than our largest businesses & I find that unacceptable.

If you want someone on council who will work & fight for you, vote for me on November 6th!

Thanks to all of the residents who showed up tonight and submitted questions for the forum! I am always excited to see voters actively engaged in the political process from elections and beyond!

For those unable to attend or view, I continued my commitment to utilizing community input and experiences in addressing our cities’ needs. Everything is intersectional. Through creative solutions based on this idea we can address multiple issues at once, increase our efficiency, and get to the root of the our cities deficiencies.

While my ideas are outlined on my campaign website, I will prioritize our communities through focused policy on affordable and attainable housing - including renters’ rights and protections for those with Section 8 and criminal backgrounds. I will bring the $15/hour minimum wage to Roseville and develop an urban policy which emphasizes the relationship between community and small business further reducing crime and allowing us to focus on police-community relationships.

To attain these goals I will review our tax policies and ensure large commercial areas like Rosedale Mall and Wal-Mart are paying their fair share of taxes and contributing as much to our community as we expect of our residential property owners and renters.

I promise to be an advocate of our community and be an amplifier of their ideas. It is our community who volunteers and engages each other on a daily basis and we have a lot to learn from them!

I am excited to announce I have the endorsement of Minnesota Representative Susan Allen and Dr. Nekima Levy -Pounds, former mayoral candidate of Minneapolis. Both women have been advocates for BIPOC rights’ and policies which work to provide more equitable communities. I am thankful for their endorsements as I promise to continue this push for a more equitable Roseville.

Just a reminder that I will be at the Roseville Juneteenth Celebration tomorrow at Roseville Central Park, 2495 N. Victoria St. The event begins at 5PM but I will be there closer to 6. I will say a few words about Juneteenth, but in no formal capacity as a candidate. If you see me afterward please say hello and let me know about issues important to you!

While Juneteenth is a celebration of emancipation, there has remained institutional discrimination in our society. Please come join me June 19th, 2018 at the Roseville Juneteenth Celebration and get to know how I plan to address these issues of racial disparities.
