Any successful municipality must excel in three core areas. 1-Security: Citizens must not just feel safe, they must be safe. 2-Education: Families (those with children) must have a high performing school system. 3-Strong Business Climate: To pay for "essential services". On a 1 (low) to ten (high) Minneapolis is about a 7 for security 5 for education and 6 for business. This is a recipient for a slow burn.

It appears the euphemism of "ambitious vision" equals expensive, politically correct, tax-payer funded projects, which in turn require more and more funding to keep afloat.

R.T.has been one the finest mayors this city have ever known, and it has had quite a few great mayors. His love for this city, his visionary attitudes, his tireless working to enhance our community should be thanked for his service to our city.

Is creating another Detroit really an ambitious future? It really doesn't matter which liberal is elected. All liberals are bent on spending money they don't have, demonizing those that have created wealth and demanding more of it. As with all large cities run by democrats, they are failed liberal experiments. Since these failed cities have been owned by the democrats forever will they ever accept responsibility? Will the voters wake up and vote them out? No.

Really disappointed that Rybak wasn't able to improve the HS graduation rate in Mpls. This has to become a bigger priority than a green Nicollet Mall with the next mayor.
