Endorsed by Friends of the Boundary Waters!

I’m proud to have just received the endorsement of Friends of the Boundary Waters! I am a strong believer in the protection of all of the state’s surface waters and aquifers. The Boundary Waters is a treasure recognized across North America as a destination and touchstone to nature. I have stood firm, often under significant pressure, to preserve this region and adjoining watersheds from the insults of the likes of copper-sulfide mining. Thank you friends for all of your efforts to protect what we love!

An endorsement from the DFL Environmental Caucus!

Hey everybody, look what just came in the mail!

“The DFLEC is thrilled to endorse Veda Kanitz for election in the south metro House District 57A, which includes Elko New Market and parts of Lakeville. Kanitz is a science teacher and DFL leader who served for years as Chair of the DFL Environmental Caucus, and is one of our party’s most hardworking environmental advocates. If elected to this seat, she will be among the Legislature’s strongest champions for climate action, clean water, and a healthy future for all Minnesotans, and we are tremendously honored to support her candidacy!”

Full disclosure: with my candidacy for HD57A, I stepped aside from my roles in the DFLEC. I’m proud and happy to receive this endorsement, and I’m comfortable with having received it fair and square!
