Minneapolis City Hall, Rm 317
The NLG-MN Chapter opposes the reappointment of Susan Segal as City Attorney. Her tenure has been marked by allowing politics to determine the legal advice she provides to the City Council. She blocked the police insurance and $15 NOW measures from the ballot. She has attempted to restrict public access to government data about Minneapolis Police Department complaints and activities. Her office vigorously prosecutes victims of police brutality to cover for police conduct. She has taken unjust and extreme positions in the prosecution of political activists and even their attorneys for criminal offenses.
The chapter sent a letter to the Executive Committee outlining our concerns. You can see that letter here.
Please call the members of the Executive Committee to urge them to vote against Susan Segal’s reappointment. Please also make your plans to attend the Executive Committee meeting on Tuesday, February 20 at 10:00 am in City Council Chambers, Rm 317, City Hall (350 S 5th Street, Minneapolis).
