HON. PAUL ANDERSON,now retired from the Minnesota Supreme Court, is a frequent contributor to Access to Democracy program, both as a guest and as a host. In reviewing the 2018 Election with Alan, Justice Anderson gave a wide-ranging review of both national and state topics, where the DFL kept all the MN Constitutional offices, as well as reviewing the local Congressional races..
IMAM ASAD ZAMAN, co-founder of both the Muslim American Society of Minnesota (MASM) and the Rabbi/Imam Round Table, laments with Alan the escalating spiral of bigotry and violence against minority communities in the USA in the past two years. Little did they know that only 24 hours later, a gunman would kill 11 worshipers at a synagogue in Pittsburgh.
ANTHONY ANDLER, proprietor of Heimie’s in St. Paul, has led the rebirth of downtown St. Paul in the last 15 years, progressing from a leather craftsman to owner of an establishment featuring quality menswear, offering three master barbers for clients, and soon plans to expand the business to include both women’s clothing and a large section for men to outfit themselves for weddings. He still crafts a variety of leather goods, “on the other side of the river.”
Rep. Sandy Masin (DFL 51A), is a long-time well-liked leader for District 51A. She is proud of the work she has done, and is running for re-election to help move Minnesota forward on issues like health care reform, education, environment, and transportation. She discusses the downside of Omnibus bills and polarization, and the critical role of citizen engagement and how people can make a difference in the process.
Patti Anderson, (aka “Pat”) has served Minnesota as State Auditor, Commissioner, Mayor of Eagan, and Republican (GOP) State Committeewoman. She is seeking a legislative seat in the MN House in 2018 in District 38B. She and Alan always have spirited interviews contesting their differing philosophies, but remain good friends. Patti has also become a businessowner, and first appeared on Access in 2002.
Angie Craig, DFL Candidate for Minnesota’s Congressional District 2, unveiled a new campaign ad featuring actor Samuel L. Jackson as she discussed her campaign with Alan (watch the interview – it is a great ad!), her platform for the future, and some of the tribulations she has faced in particularly negative campaign tactics from her incumbent opponent. A mother of four, from very humble beginnings, she displayed unwavering energy and vitality in the campaign’s final weeks.
