There are a number of contested County Commissioner races in both Ramsey County and Hennepin County this year. This is a Hennepin County post.
There are two candidates on the ballot:
Marion Greene has been on the Hennepin County Board since 2014. She was unopposed for endorsement at the DFL convention this spring and sailed through (and has endorsed Mary Moriarty, I saw when I went looking for whether she’d had any challengers for endorsement). Her accomplishments page is impressive. Ashley Boldin uses a lot of buzzwords, has no endorsements that I could find, and hasn’t posted on her social media since early September.
I would vote for Marion Greene.
So a week or two back, it looked like WordPress had deleted most of my subscribers? But now it’s back to saying I have 10,143 instead of 473. But if you rely on e-mail to notify you I’ve posted, and this is the first post you’ve seen this year, you should know I’ve posted a bunch of other posts! Also, if you’re not a subscriber, plugging in your e-mail in the subscriber box (you may have to do this on desktop rather than phone) will get you an e-mail every time I post. That might not sound appealing, but if it does, now you know.
If you’d like to make a donation to encourage me to keep working on these, I am highlighting a science teacher at Sullivan STEAM magnet who needs some better computers so his students can actually program the cool robots they got. Or, you can donate to the Movement Voter fundraiser I created; I explained back in May why I’m fundraising for the Movement Voter PAC and the fundraiser is still active.
In addition to writing political commentary, I write science fiction and fantasy. My book that came out in April 2021, Chaos on CatNet, takes place in a future Minneapolis. It’s a sequel to Catfishing on CatNet and signed copies of both books are usually available from Dreamhaven and the NOW REOPENED Uncle Hugo’s (it’s at 2716 E 31st St in Minneapolis, in the former Glass Endeavors.)
