Ray "Skip" SandmanIP Endorsed - Congressional District 8
Vietnam veteran Ray “Skip” Sandman, 64, officially received the endorsement of the Independence Party of Minnesota as he pursues the 8th Congressional District seat.
Sandman is strong on environmental activism and opposition to projects which might imperil major water sources including the proposed PolyMet sulfide mine near the BWCA.
“The IP continues to grow and attract quality candidates,” noted Phil Fuehrer, IP State Chair. “Skip Sandman joining our team gives the voters of CD 8 a true independent choice for this open seat,” Fuehrer added.
“I proudly accept the Minnesota Independence Party’s endorsement and look forward to offering the voters in my district a choice for real representation. For too long, the candidates of the two major parties have taken the people of the eighth for granted and have chosen to represent the interests of corporations and their wealthy donors. Our shared centrist vision of valuing the people and the planet before profits will insure that we all will prosper,” says Sandman.
