So in addition to a caucus/endorsement, primary, and general this race will now have a special election as well in the next 10 months. Whew!

How in the world we will be able to find another tax and spend commissioner to replace her?!

I hope we can get some one in that seat who will STOP wasting our tax dollars on bogus county initiatives and pet projects like the ridiculous SW light rail to no where. Peter McLaughlin, Linda Higgins and Mike Opat need to go, too. These three continue to fund poverty programs like Summit Academy OIC and The African American Men's Project, and then can't figure out why blacks are still the highest minority group who can't get jobs. Maybe they could get jobs if these bleeding heart liberals would leave them alone! Have you thought about that?

Lot of "former" on the candidates resumes. Perhaps what is needed is a "fresh" face for the board.

Last I checked, the Excelsior & Grand area is part of St. Louis Park, not Minneapolis.

I hope a recycled candidate doesn't win. We need some fresh faces and ideas.

Took a look at the Hennepin County page where she is listed and reviewed her priorities. The exact few things I suspected and would find in just about every urban jurisdiction in America. I wonder how much of her ambitions w/respect to local government where funded by federal dollars (housing/transportation in particular)? She worked previously for a congressman from MA and a governor from Ohio, then presumably relocated to the Moneyappolis area. I do not mean to disrespect her but are there no longer people from the private sector who entertain or actually run for local offices in the metro?
