From the North Loop, Mill District, and Downtown East to the neighborhoods of Northeast Minneapolis and Marcy-Holmes near the U of M, the 3rd Ward is critically important to the city’s economic strength and cultural identity. We get one person on the City Council to represent us on matters ranging from business recovery and public safety to social justice, housing, and other key issues.
This fall, incumbent Steve Fletcher is being challenged by Democrats Michael Rainville and Merv Moorhead as well as Independent candidate Hope Hennessey.
The Downtown Minneapolis Neighborhood Association is teaming up with the North Loop Neighborhood Association to host a live virtual forum on September 13 from 5:30-6:30 pm.
Tane Danger, founder of the Theater of Public Policy and professional political moderator, will keep it all civilized and moving forward. All four candidates for the Ward 3 seat plan to participate.
Originally planned as an in-person event, we have decided instead to host it virtually in the interest of public health. You may join the meeting Monday evening via this Zoom link and we will also stream it live on the North Loop Facebook page.
