The first thing she can do is drop the idea of a $200M streetcar line, and the southwest light rail - both HUGE wastes of taxpayer dollars.

To much focus on the young people here,need to focus on the elderly and disabled and low income instead of cutting back benefits and help for the most in need

Read the article about payments for police abuse of citizens tells me one of her first efforts should be to help the Minneapolis Police purge itself of these outlaws in Blue. The payments may be rounding errors to some but the true cost diminishes respect, and therefor cooperation with the police.

Sounds like this women is not going to be a good mayor to me,there are needs of many ages of people not only young people and sounds she has targeted a group of certain age of people she wants to help does not make for a good mayor
