In this episode, Jason and Andrew interview Minnesota Governor candidate, Mary Giuliani Stephens. She is the current mayor of Woodbury, MN, so we have a lot to talk about. We discuss issues that she has had to face as mayor, including pressure from outside groups to enact different projects and policies that aren't in Woddbury's best interest or a dislike for TIF Districts. We also talk about opportunities she would have as mayor to increase local control, and get the state government off the backs of localities.
In the Local Lowdown, we discuss the proposed MNPASS lane on Hwy 252 in Brooklyn Park. We also talk about the proposed "Turkey Farm" development in Andover.
