Minneapolis is a premier American city handicapped by a centralized, overreaching government that is stifling the freedom and prosperity of its citizens. MCRC advocates a philosophy of localized, limited government, strong wards, and active citizens. We seek to elect candidates to city office who want to open Minneapolis once again to small businesses, parent/teacher controlled schools, and to make our city affordable for families.

minnesotaconnected.com, 3/19/14
"Minneapolis doesn't just want more cash either, it needs it; the city is broke but it's quite good at masking the fact, God forbid they ever get audited by the state and if it ever wants to be able to do some heavy spending again, it will need a larger tax base." Mr. Bergs nails it. Full audit of Mpls budget. Now.

They will continue to waste our money trying to force people to do what they don't want to do.

Seven Minimum Wage Facts That Have Democrats Worried
By Wynton Hall
Breitbart.com, 1/5/14
Fact #1, just 2.8% of American workers earn at or below the minimum wage and #2, half of all minimum wage workers are 16 to 24 years old. Typical of progressives to raise this non-issue as a smokescreen for the real havoc they have and are causing the economy. Look away from this shiny object and focus on defeating Obamacontrol.
