Discontents to take over the Contented Cow on Saturday, May 21;
Paula Overby to formally announce her CD2 candidacy
In an election year that seemingly sees millions of voters shut out of the selection process by partisan control of the system, Paula is representing a new political paradigm. She is running as an independent candidate, endorsed by the Independence Party of Minnesota, providing a meaningful choice to independent voters and those discontented with the current political landscape.
In an era of serious migration of wealth and disappearance of employee benefits, Paula Overby is disheartened to see two respected Minnesota Companies, Valspar and St Jude Medical disappearing into the growing consolidation of corporate monopolies. “These actions only serve to stifle competition and manipulate financial markets,” said Overby. “The solution is not to eliminate government, but to create a government that works for all the people.” It is Overby’s strong belief that stable investment markets and capital flow are essential to new business development.
In a field of three women candidates, Overby looks forward to some serious discussion about family and women's issues such as flex time, living wages for working moms, reproductive health care and family leave. “The new political paradigm seeks to engage people, including youth, generate meaningful discussion and break down partisan barriers to political participation,” Overby noted. “My campaign will seek to achieve that.”
Come meet Paula and her children to talk about young people’s views, fairness in our election processes, justice for the working middle class, and more. The event runs from 5 – 9 PM on Saturday May 21st at the Contented Cow, 302B Division St S in Northfield. Overby will address attendees at 7 PM.
