VIDEO: Minnesota SEIU sponsors anti-GOP ads

The Minnesota Service Employees International Union today announced plans to “dramatically increase” its donations to the Alliance for a Better Minnesota in order to run advertisements criticizing the state’s GOP-controlled legislature over the budget impasse that led to the government shutdown.

The ads will highlight Republicans’ “choice” to “shut down our government in support of draconian cuts to education and increased property taxes, rather than asking the richest 2 percent of Minnesotans to pay their fair share,” according to an SEIU statement.

The union has also released its own video, which addresses the impact of budget cuts on the state’s educational system.

“I know every time I hear on the news they have to cut something, the government, the school district…it makes me cringe because I know my son will be affected,” Melissa Demers, a South St. Paul mother of a child with special needs, said in the video, which also features Sen. Al Franken and Roseville Rep. Mindy Greiling, among others.

SEIU will promote the video through advertisements and ask viewers to urge their legislators in order “to compromise with Governor Dayton on a balanced approach to our budget.”

SEIU’s increased contribution will support a new set of online, radio and print advertising, aimed at driving people to a new website, ShutdownShame.com, which will share stories about how the shutdown is affecting Minnesotans, an SEIU press release states.
