Community Solutions Podcast

Mar 1, 2020 Today, on Episode 150 we welcome the original, the standard bearer, Mayor Mark Korin to the show! Mayor Korin has quite the tale to tell. He never intended to be mayor, but like us, local politics found him. The hubris of local politicians in Oak Grove, MN awakened something in him that compelled him to get involved. (Sound familiar?) He started on an advisory commission, got onto the city council, and eventually became mayor. He took on some city staff that thought that they ran the city instead of the council. He then went on to take on the Met Council, reduce taxes, and make Oak Grove a great place to live. We talk to Mark about his time in office and that there is a different way to run local government than what almost every other city in Minnesota seems to do. We also pry into his future plans. You don't want to miss this episode!

We recorded this episode before the Iowa Caucus... and while we're still not exactly sure who won, we're as close as we're gonna get. At any rate, we gave predictions. Guess how we did? One of us did slightly better than the other.
