From EPNI

A note to our Supporters

Please contact the Mayor (jacob.frey@minneapolismn.gov), the City Council members (all can be reached at citycouncilmember@minneapolismn.gov), the State Legislators and Federal Senators and Representatives and the Governor and help us make the case for what is right. In your calls insist on real community engagement and development instead of city sponsored increases in pollution and congestion which is in violation of the state’s Clark/Berglund Cumulative Pollution legislation. Please CC your responses to cpass@runbox.com
