Statement from Minneapolis Regional Chamber President and CEO Jonathan Weinhagen Regarding Defund the Police Charter Amendment

Today’s ruling on the Defund the Police charter amendment is the right one. As we’ve consistently said, voters should have more – not less – information to help them make their decision. The court has seen through the attempt by a majority of the Council to obfuscate their true intentions. We encourage voters to vote no on defunding the police, no on eliminating the police chief, and no to abandoning real & necessary reforms.
