Hell No Brett Buckner!
By Lisa Clemons, Contributor to BPM

TO ALL MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY IN THE 5TH WARD: A person by the name, Brett Buckner, announced that he is running for the 5th ward City Council seat... Please don't waste your vote!

I was a member of the Minneapolis NAACP in 2003-2004, When Rev. Al Gallmon was elected President and Brett Buckner was elected Vice President. They were both greedy thieves who robbed the black community.

RE: Al Gallmon- After resigning as President of the NAACP in 2003 under accusations from the membership that he was MISAPPROPRIATING FUNDS, In 2007 Startribune reported the following: “The Rev. Al Gallmon Jr., an influential Minneapolis pastor and civic leader for more than a decade, admitted that he used a church credit card to cover more than $18,500 in personal expenses and failed to promptly report more than $62,000 in over-compensation last year.” He was the pastor of Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church in north Minneapolis. Gallmon left Minnesota.
