6th District: John Binkowski


SNAPSHOT
John Binkowski has been endorsed in the 6th District race by the Independence Party of Minnesota.

As a candidate, I hope to elevate the level of political dialogue by pledging that I will never abandon the principle that one can disagree with an opinion without disrespecting the human being that underlies it. No need for negativity here, I’m running on my own strengths, not the weaknesses of others."
