TTT1743 October 23 Local Elections
Who says “off-year” elections are inconsequential? In Minneapolis, dozens of candidates — including a substantial slate of endorsees from Our Revolution, the successor organization to the Bernie Sanders campaign — are vying for mayor, City Council, and Park Board positions. In St. Paul, a crowded field of candidates is competing for the mayor’s seat vacated by Chris Coleman. In what many see as the most significant test yet of our ranked-choice voting system, there’s a lot at stake in this year’s municipal elections. Join TruthToTell host Tom O’Connell as he discusses the various races with three of the Twin Cities most astute political observers: Peter Callaghan, who covers local politics and government for MinnPost; Dylan Thomas, editor of the Southwest Journal; and Jeanne Massey, executive director of Fair Vote Minnesota.
