Community Solutions Podcast

Aug 11, 2020 It's the weekend before the big primary. Are you planning to vote? I know... it's a primary election, so who does? We ALL should. Are you tired of voting for the lesser of two evils? Then vote in the primary to decide who's on the ballot. Whether this is a good system or not is irrelevant. It's the system we have. If we don't participate, we get what we're handed.

It's important to make sure that you get informed on the candidates before you go to the polls. Don't listen to the commercials. Don't listen to the media (except us, we'll never steer you wrong). Start looking at your races on the Minnesota Secretary of State Candidate Filing website. We go through a few races live on the air to show you how we do our research and get you started, since it would be impossible for us to discuss every race.

We play a little game show called "Who's The Most Radical?". We go through the special election in Minneapolis for Abdi Warsame's seat in Cedar Riverside/Seward neighborhoods, wondering if the riots have changed the attitude in the city. We evaluate the candidates and see if they're bound to get more of the same or if change may be coming.

Also, there's trouble in paradise. Jacob Frey blamed Governor Walz for the delay in the National Guard's arrival during the Minneapolis riots. They both made huge missteps, but the facts seem to show that the Governor received the request from Mayor Frey and waited almost a day and a half to mobilize the Guard. The continued lack of leadership in our state's leaders is frightening. Do they agree with the radicals that started this?
