MN paper profiles Green, ex-Green governor candidates

Detroit Lakes Online has published a profile of four minor party candidates for Minnesota Governor, including the Green Party’s Farheen Hakeem and former Green candidate Ken Pentel.

Hakeem, this year’s Green Party candidate, said “government plays a major role in the quality of life for all people” and needs of the people are not being met.

She promised to “bring more community involvement” to state government.

She proposes immigration reform that provides better treatment and respect and wants to redistribute Minnesotans’ wealth “by taxing people with higher incomes and assisting low-income families and individuals get back on their feet.”

Hakeem also backs equal rights for the gay community and creating a state-owned bank and wind energy company.

  1. Hakeem Green Party story is an amazing one.

    Thanks to GPW for highligting it here.

    Soooo much distortion at some of the “lame-stream” media.

    Yet here we have a brave, amazingly so, Green Party candidate from the Islamic faith…and neither the cable networks, or broadcast networks report on Hakeem.

    Thanks Hakeeem for your Green Party courage. You are like Petra Kelly, who I knew, and loved, in her fearlessness. You do us proud.
