Brooklyn Park DFL endorses Reva Chamblis for city council

reva chamblisThe Brooklyn Park DFL Unit held its first Endorsing Convention on May 17 and endorsed Reva Chamblis in her bid for the suburb’s city council.

Chamblis, a 14-year resident of Brooklyn Park, running for the open Brooklyn Park East District seat, won the endorsement running on a platform of prosperity and equality.

Chamblis, who sits on both the city’s Human Rights Commission and Public Safety Task Force, said she intends to use her experience, knowledge and leadership to create strong support for growth of new and existing businesses both small and large. As a city council member Chamblis said she would also support inclusive strategies and decisions to create prosperity for all segments of its populations.

The newly DFL-endorsed candidate said her desire is to create more well-paying jobs and a wide spectrum of housing options, including senior housing within the city. She also said she plans to help make Brooklyn Park a destination place by supporting development plans for available spaces and open land to create community centers, a variety of restaurants, more retail and entertainment venues.

Also endorsed by the convention Rich Gates for Brooklyn Park Central District City Council and Joy Marsh Stephens for Brooklyn Park Mayor.

The goal of the convention was to endorse viable Brooklyn Park candidates that have demonstrated progressive Democratic values while being intimately acquainted with the issues that concern Brooklyn Park.
