WE HAVE
ONE OF THE HIGHEST POVERTY RATES
IN THE COUNTRY. 
LET ASWAR HAVE AT IT.

By directing funding towards early childhood care, expanding tuition free higher ed, and creating jobs through our city’s small businesses, Aswar’s plan will reduce poverty in Mpls from 25% to 9%.

"I, Aswar Rahman,
American, immigrant, food-stamp-fed,
Southside-welcomed, Northeast-raised, 

Northside-matured, Southwest-educated, 
City-Hall-trained, 
vow to direct four years of unrestrained energy and 
every resource of the Office of Mayor
to fight poverty in Minneapolis,
in all its forms.

This is big, I know. 
Let me at it."
