"We are impressed with Marion's passion for and commitment to equity and human rights issues. Marion has been a leader on equality both in the legislature and the community. As a State Representative, she donated her 2011 'government shut down' paycheck to fight the proposed anti-marriage constitutional amendment."
"Marion worked tirelessly to turn back the amendment, and to elect a majority in the Minnesota House that would pave the way for the historic passage of marriage rights for all. She is an activist at heart, and will bring an experienced, fresh perspective to the County Board. We are proud to support her, and look forward to her passion and leadership as Hennepin County Commissioner."
