Our Revolution Congratulates Tim Keller
WASHINGTON - Our Revolution on congratulated Tim Keller on advancing to the run-off election for Mayor of Albuquerque, New Mexico. Keller’s campaign is also supported by the local Our Revolution group, Our Revolution New Mexico.
“Our Revolution is proud of Tim Keller’s performance,” said Our Revolution Executive Director Shannon Jackson. “Tim is the only candidate for mayor who reached the threshold of small donations to qualify for a publicly funded campaign. That achievement demonstrates Tim’s broad support with Albuquerque's working families and means that he’ll be accountable to the people, not big business, when he’s elected mayor.”
Our Revolution New Mexico supported Keller by volunteering on his campaign and speaking with Albuquerque voters about the importance of electing a mayor who is transparent and accountable to the citizens of Albuquerque.
Our Revolution supports progressive champions at every level of government. By supporting candidates backed by people, not corporations, we are aiming to transform American politics to make our political and economic systems responsive to the needs of working families.
THE LAST FIREWALL AGAINST THE LIES
Independent media has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support our critical Winter campaign now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing.
Our Revolution will reclaim democracy for the working people of our country by harnessing the transformative energy of the “political revolution.” Through supporting a new generation of progressive leaders, empowering millions to fight for progressive change and elevating the political consciousness, Our Revolution will transform American politics to make our political and economic systems once again responsive to the needs of working families.
Our Revolution has three intertwined goals: to revitalize American democracy, empower progressive leaders and elevate the political consciousness.
