Members of the press –
Today the Carter campaign received a letter from the Saint Paul Police Federation.
The following is a statement on that letter from campaign manager Emily Weber:
“The letter we received from the Saint Paul Police Federation demonstrates the way people of color are presumed guilty by police every day in our city.
The idea that a victim of a crime could become the accused based solely on the color of their skin is exactly why police culture needs to change, and it’s why our campaign has proposed a police reform plan to rebuild trust in our community. This shameful attack exemplifies why that reform is so critical.
We call on the other candidates in this race – especially Pat Harris, who has been endorsed by the Saint Paul Police Federation – to condemn this racist attack for what it is, and to reject the Federation’s methods and endorsement.”
As always, reach out if you have any questions.
