Might have been nice to let us know his qualifications for such a post? I mean, other than DFL affiliation?

Leave one government job for another government job. As mentioned by a previous commenter, this guy's qualifications other than party affiliate should be mentioned along with his salary. "Early learning office" reeks of a bogus, unnecessary government funded job.

Does he have any credentials in education or is he another "community organizer?"

Melvin is the real deal. If you're trying to slight him by comparing him to Obama then, uhh, sure. I guess we'd agree on something.

Never heard of the "Early Learning Office". What exactly does this layer of administration do, what is its budget and who benefits? Seems like more overkill and waste to me.

Melvin Carter's legacy is going to be stifled growth in Frogtown along Central Corridor, due to his rezoning efforts that will not allow for buildings over 3 stories high near LRT stations. We are destined to hear about "Historic Rondo" being left behind once again.
