In her endorsement, Hortman explained that over the years she has come to know Reva through working on a number of DFL campaigns and issues together. The representative said she has come to admire Chamblis' consistent hard work and her attention to Brooklyn Park's issues. Hortman cited Chamblis sitting on Brooklyn Park's Human Rights commission and Public Safety Task Force as proof of her commitment to work for a better Brooklyn Park.
"Reva, a 14 year resident of Brooklyn Park, is running on a progressive platform that includes prosperity and equality for all, believing that the two values go hand in hand in creating a more prosperous, safe, stable and engaged city," said Hortman. "(Reva) values everyone having a chance to succeed in Brooklyn Park and Reva supports economic opportunities for everyone as well as economic growth in Brooklyn Park."
