    in News

    Ronald A. Edwards breaks his silence on the National and local (Minneapolis) NAACP. n 2003, Mr. Ronald A. Edwards exposed the national and Minneapolis NAACP with information about millions of dollars gone missing from the coffers. Later the same year, the national NAACP expelled Edwards for life.

Edwards has been a mainstay in print, television and radio. He now my co-host on the award winning BlogTalkRadio program, “The Ron and Don Show,” broadcast weekly every Wednesday at 8:30 pm.

    The Ron and Don Show: A New Day for the Minneapolis NAACP and more

    in News

    The Minneapolis branch of the NAACP is celebrating a new beginning with the election of several new officers who will set forth to build capacity and make a difference for the Minneapolis branch of the NAACP.


    On Friday, December 13, by an overwhelming margin, the pastor of New Salem Missionary Baptist church, Rev. Jerry McAfee was elected as president of the Minneapolis branch of the NAACP with a solid vote of the majority of members in attendance.


    Also elected to the executive committee, as Vice President was former Minneapolis policewoman Ms. Lisa Clemons. IBNN’s Don Allen was elected as second Vice President with three other candidates vying for the spot. Allen tells us in a candid interview, “Nobody thought I was going to win. I care about black people in Minnesota. The current road we are on will kill us. The lack of economic development, poor housing, educational challenges and people speaking for people of color who don’t represent ‘people of color’ is over during my watch. Its time to change the dynamics and I’m ready to take action in Minnesota on behalf of the Minneapolis NAACP. It will no longer be about a political party and supporting hen-pecked issues, it will be about making a good life for people of color in Minneapolis.”


    Business owner and mega producer Tonia Johnson was elected as treasurer of the Minneapolis branch of the NAACP. The Minneapolis branch also elected a secretary and assistant secretary on Friday night.


    The phone lines will be open, it's time to talk.

    Minneapolis NAACP member invokes Legal Action against the new People's Stadium

    in News

    Doug Mann, perennial Minneapolis School Board candidate and candidate for Minneapolis mayor last fall and a life-long  member of the Minneapolis NAACP started a pro se action last summer to compel a city-wide referendum on the new Viking stadium finance package:



    Mann said he will file his petition for a writ of mandamus that seeks a public referendum on use of city sales taxes to help finance the edifice, as authorized by the Legislature.
    He wants the court to order that the city follow a provision of its charter that requires voter approval when more than $10 million in city funds are spent on an athletic facility.  The city is expected to note that the legislation overrides that charter provision.
    The city will finance its portion of the stadium using a suite of sales taxes – a citywide sales tax, downtown restaurant and liquor taxes and a hotel tax. Those taxes currently pay for the city’s convention center, but money will be freed up when debt on that facility is paid in 2020.The total city subsidy is $309 million, or $678 million when accounting for interest over the life of the deal.
     


    Well, the city did “note” the override, and the Hennepin County District ruled that both Mann and the city were right. It did violate the charter, but the state overrode the charter with the stadium legislation. That decision is now on appeal.


    Phone lines will be open to ask the question: Will the Minneapolis membership of the NAACP stand behind Mr. Doug Mann, or wait for a payoff from the MSFA?
