Our Shared Values
Michelle Lee is the 2020 DFL endorsed candidate for Minnesota's Senate District 11. Despite lucrative career opportunities in the big city the award winning journalist and her husband made a decision early on to build a home in District 11 and raise a family.
Working two jobs they enjoyed the rewards of small town life. Michelle is running for office to make sure the same opportunities are available for future generations choosing to live and prosper in our rural communities.
Lee believe our shared values will be critical in the years ahead as we rebuild systems in a post COVID-19 world. “This pandemic has taken its toll on lives and livelihoods across Minnesota and our nation. Life has changed dramatically and yet, as DFL’ers we stand united, indivisible and committed in our belief that people come first,” She said.
The Michelle Lee for Senate Campaign is endorsed by MN AFL-CIO, MAPE, AFSCME Council 5, AFSCME Council 65, Teamsters Joint Council 31, Education Minnesota, Carlton County Central Labor Body, SMART-TD Minnesota, Women Winning, Minnesota NOW, Planned Parenthood Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota Action Fund, Land Stewardship Action Fund, MN350 Action and the Stonewall DFL, along with the DFL Veterans and Senior Caucuses.
An advocate for rural communities, party activist and former journalist, Lee makes her home in Moose Lake Township with her husband, Gary.
