There were late-starting campaigns in some of these. Im not going to label anyone unserious, but Im not going to spill a lot of ink on the late entrants, either. If any of them and/or their supporters feel that theyre being shorted, heres recourse. My source for whos running is the Minneapolis elections website.
Ward 1: The incumbent DFLer is Kevin Reich. Mark Fox has been in the running for a while, but he isnt really running. Its never quite clear, to me, whether candidates like Vincent Coffeen are trying to make some sort of statement about politics, or are just having fun, of a sort. Maybe both?
Ward 2: By all accounts the incumbent, Green Partier Cam Gordon, enjoys strong support. His challenger is Diana Newberry (Socialist Workers Party), whose online presence needs a boost, or at least something.
Ward 3: DFL incumbent Diane Hofstede is facing the hard-charging, DFL-endorsed Jacob Frey campaign. I wrote about Hofstedes possibly considerable headwinds, here. The Green Party candidate is Kristina Gronquist. The other name on the list is Michael Katch. Heres what turned up for him, in my search.
Ward 4: Barb Johnson is the DFL-endorsed incumbent and current Council President. Another DFLer, Kris Brogan, is on the list, but I found no recent indication that shes campaigning with any vigor, if at all. This may be the Dan Niesen who joined late.

Republicans don't even post a serious challenge in these wards, as in most of Minnesota.

The name jacking, coward, troll is at it again. Libs are so unimaginative. They can't even come with their own moniker.

Funny how the republithugs never can comment on the issues.
