Kelliher supports single payer

Yes, this is encouraging, and as one might expect because of the brutality issue, I am relieved that Rybak did not advance.

Interestingly, the Strib reported that ReNEW MN came close to endorsing Rybak, but did not have 60% within their group. So, apparently Rukavina and Marty beat them to the punch. The spokesperson for ReNEW is Erik Peterson, who Cam Gordon and I worked with as part of the 6-member Citizens' Reform Network in 1993. Peterson went on to become Marty's first campaign manager, but they had a falling out which I never got to the bottom of.

I know Kelliher blocked putting the stadium tax to a vote of the people, but I want to hear from opinion leaders Dave Bicking, Farheen Hakeem, and David Shove. Is Kelliher better than Rybak?

One story from Rybak's speech I found particularly interesting. He said that after his father died, his mother ran the family store, and at one point they were held up by robbers. This traumatic experience might explain why otherwise mild-mannered Rybak allows such overzealous policing.
