Perry announces endorsement in Ward 13 race

Today, Ward 13 City Council candidate Matt Perry announced that council members Robert Lilligren and John Quincy have endorsed Perry in his race against Linea Palmisano in Southwest Minneapolis.

“I have seen his commitment to the community on such issues as funding for neighborhood organizations and improving how city government engages with those who live and work here,” Lilligren (Ward 6) said in a press release. “Matt gets results by combining a grassroots approach to engagement with knowledge of how to get things done at City Hall.”

Added Quincy (Ward 11): “His ability to support local businesses and his balanced vision for Minneapolis’ infrastructure, uniquely qualifies him to be a great representative for the 13th Ward on the City Council.”

Last week, Perry announced the endorsement of Hennepin County Commissioner Gail Dorfman.

Perry and Palmisano are seeking the DFL endorsement at the Ward 13 convention on May 4.
