Colin Lee was a 2012 Democratic candidate for Minnesota House of Representatives in District 58A.


Campaign themes

Lee has stated, "Government is a means of using our shared goals to seek efficiencies, freedom, and justice. In Minnesota, we cannot afford to each plow our own route to work through the snow or each build our own roads. We work together because our nation is stronger when we do. Together, we must solve the most critical problems which are likely to harm our state's future."[1]

Key among his goals are closing the achievement gap in schools, funding and improving education to keep employers in Minnesota, and ending skyrocketing increases in the cost of medical care which are unique to America's medical system.[1]

Campaign donors

In his two previous campaigns, he refused all PAC and lobbyist donations. In 2012, "Due to the huge influx of money reaching campaigns from the Citizens United ruling, Colin has begun accepting PAC donations, but primarily still prefers to raise money from individual voters."[1]
