John, I need your help getting out the vote

Hi John,  Nearly 50 years ago, I was a senior in high school preparing to attend Marquette University to study psychology. Then I got pregnant and my world turned upside down. I raised my daughter with the help of weekend jobs and welfare assistance, attended nursing school, then law school, then b…

Forward this email to everyone you knowi

0 John,  We’re three days out. Over the next 72 hours, my team will continue talking with justice partners, listening to voters, and focusing on the issues that most impact all of Hennepin County. There’s zero chance we would’ve made it this far without your support.   I got into this race because …

READ: Our opponent enjoyed $70,000 in illegal campaign spending

Hi John, We just got word that one of the biggest PACs spending hundreds of thousands of dollars against Martha has broken campaign finance law by taking $70,000 from Solidaire Network, an unregistered California-based police abolition fund. Mary Moriarty has always avoided answering the question o…

Why I'm endorsing Martha

John,  Representative Dean Phillips here. Earlier this month, I endorsed Martha Holton Dimick to be the next Hennepin County Attorney because I believe that safety and justice aren’t mutually exclusive—they’re mutually mandatory.  Martha’s journey from single mother on welfare, to prosecutor, to d…

These numbers are not what you think

John,  Yesterday we announced that our team outraised my opponent by a 2-to-1 margin, $185,000 to $94,000. 97% of my donors are from right here in Minnesota.   Most importantly, I want to say thank you. We worked so hard for this fundraising haul and we couldn't have done it without you.  But here…

Quick update on Martha's deadline

Martha asked, and so many of you stepped up: With only a handful of hours left before our big filing deadline, we're now just $2,550 away from our goal. Again, thank you.   John, there's still time to chip in $10, $25, or even $50 before midnight. It's so important that everyone knows Martha and w…

My final deadline is at midnight

We have under 12 hours to reach our goal John,  It's Martha Holton Dimick. I cannot believe it, but we are just $5,800 from reaching our very ambitious fundraising goal before tonight’s deadline.  After our final fundraising report is made public, everyone in Hennepin County will be waiting to pore…

Focusing on what matters

John, This race is getting nasty and personal. We need to stay focused on the issues that are actually relevant to the county attorney position right now: public safety and accountability.   On Tuesday, I had the pleasure of attending two Q&A sessions with students at North High and PYC High S…

Mary Moriarty's latest attacks

John, This race is getting uglier than I could’ve imagined.  Earlier today my team stumbled upon a fake version of my campaign website that launches untrue attacks against me, my record, and what I stand for.  It shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone that Mary Moriarty’s PAC is responsible for th…

Ilhan Omar's tweet

John,  Representative Ilhan Omar tweeted out a false attack on me to her 3,000,000+ Twitter followers today: The defund/abolish wing of the party is desperate to latch onto anything to stop our momentum. Still, it’s disheartening to see my Congresswoman, who herself has been the target of so many…

WATCH: "Public Safety" (TV ad)

John, Martha's back on TV next week! Projecting these advertisements in households and businesses across Hennepin County is crucial to our success this November. We won't win this race if voters head to the polls without knowing Martha's name.  This is, of course, outrageously expensive to do. Fun…

Where did the time go?

It’s hard to believe that in just thirty days, hundreds of thousands of Hennepin County voters will take to the ballot box and choose the next individual to lead the Hennepin County Attorney’s office. If voters know who I am and what I am about before Election Day, that person will be me.  We hav…

John, we need to clear this up

John,  This morning, my opponent claimed in a blast email that she is “proud to be the only candidate in this race who is endorsed by national pro-choice groups.” Today, a few supporters have reached out asking why I am not endorsed by the group she is referring to called “#VoteProChoice." I fille…

Two weeks left

John, Two weeks from now, my campaign manager may ask himself: Should we cut our TV budget in favor of recruiting door-knockers? Or do we keep our ads up on airwaves across Hennepin County by scaling back our mail program? How much could we save by printing fewer lawn signs?  These are the difficu…

My priorities haven't changed

The next Hennepin County Attorney’s number one priority must be the safety and wellbeing of our community John, I’m running this campaign on the belief that everyone has the right to be safe and equal under the law – it’s part of the same value set that guided my career as a nurse, as the north Min…

POLL: Mary Moriarty is Lying

Hi John , I hadn’t planned on emailing you tonight. I was relaxing after a day of meetings with suburban police chiefs and mayors on the porch with my dog Ella. Hi John,  I hadn’t planned on emailing you tonight. But a few of my supporters forwarded me screenshots of a poll they received from the …

READ: 'The public wants to refund, not defund, the police'

John,   The Economist wrote its cover story this month on the politics of policing in the wake of George Floyd's murder – and how my race for Hennepin County Attorney will serve as a "test of voters’ feelings on police". Here's an excerpt about last year's ballot initiative that resonates with me …
