Thank You Ward 6!

To borrow from the late Harold Washington, 

"We fought that good fight. We fought it, with unseasoned weapons and with a phalanx of people who mostly have never been involved in a political campaign before. This has truly been a pilgrimage."

As I've said from the beginning, this campaign was about community - about us. Thank you to our volunteers and supporters. You took ownership over this campaign. You educated, organized, and empowered yourselves. You were relentless and reliable, and I am humbled to have been elected to serve you.

I will spend my time as a Council Member honoring your support and continuing to work toward an innovative, equitable, and inclusive Minneapolis where everyone has a chance to succeed.

I am mindful that I did not earn the support of all residents of Ward 6, but I will work tirelessly to represent and fight for the rights of all our neighbors so that we may all see prosperity.

Finally, I'd like to thank Robert Lilligren for his 12 years of public service and look forward to work with him in the future.


I am truly humbled by your confidence and trust in me. Thank you!


With Respect,


Abdi Warsame
