Going back to Donna’s question, Mpls already has the COPE program set up with Henn Co to bring mental health workers together with police on appropriate calls. It just isn’t true that we need a charter change to deliver those kinds of services to citizens.
Who has the say?
COPE worked. It was a partnership with the county. Why not continue it?

I’d like to ask the same question of All of Mpls, where does the funding come from? And who is a part of the coalition?
35 businesses isn't very ,many. You could get 35 business owners to sign on to the "no" side just by going down Lake St. In fact it's Why Cano changed her mind about defunding, She heard from all her Latinx business owners in her ward
but john Harrington is the public safety commissioner now , are we getting a new commissioner
Allmpls was able to raise over $100K in under 2 weeks, send mailers with misinformation that went on twiter to quietly correct, where is funding coming from and what percentage is that from mpls?
Here’s a question about how it would work if police reported to both the mayor and city council members: In the summer of 2020, during the civil unrest, City Council members — the ones supporting Amendment #2 — were out on the street countermanding the orders given to them by the mayor, via Chief Arrandondo. Minister Janane, if you were those police officers, whose orders would you obey?
Can both groups put their websites here in the chat?

Why would I trust the City Council (not a fan) to keep us safe if yes passes when they aren't keeping us safe now.
for me the when is key. I’m voting YES so we can move this conversation forward. After 16 months since George Floyd was murdered i”d like us to move forward. The police is the ONLY city department with a funding formula in the charter yet we do fund our other departments. I totally understand how complicated this is - and respect everyone’s view here tonight. May we all come together after the election no matter the outcome and figure out how to create a safe and just city.
If the last year and a half has taught me anything, it’s that the best solutions are going to come from our own communities. Yes4Minneapolis gives us the opportunity for the community to inform what we want public safety to look like in our city rather than being stuck with the status quo that hasn’t been working

Good point Julia! The chief was head of internal affairs before he was chief. He’s been with MPD 20 years! Yet he’s supposed to make reform now? The mayor has had 4 years and not started reform. Their hands are tied by the charter. We need to be like many other cities in MN and the state of Mn and implement a dept of public safety to get true reform.
I came late. Is Leili Fateh here speaking on behalf of All of Minpls or her policy PR firm or both? Is she receiving money from the All Minpls apparatus? It seems like there’s a lot of disinformation being shared.
I’ve been flipped, I’m voting Yes!!
I vote Yes.

I'm all in for change! Yes for Minneapolis!
