Tenth Ward Update: Saralyn Romanishan enters Ward 10 City Council race


Following the short-lived campaign of Scott Fine, and the blunderous beginnings of candidate David Schorn, Ward 10 now has a third city council challenger: Saralyn Romanishan. Romanishan is best known for her work running the Facebook page Minneapolis Residents for Responsible Development Coalition (MRRDC).

She's risen to become a leading figure in a movement of southwest Minneapolis anti-apartment activists who have become increasingly bold in the last few years, engaging in acts of vandalism such as letting the air out of the car tires of a worker who was removing appliances from a vacant house [VIDEO].

The expressed political views of Ward 10 City Council candidate Saralyn Romanishan

Below is a selection of Saralyn Romanishan's political views. You should also read this other blog post explaining why I think she's a frightening possibility for City Council.

Tom Hoch rides wave of cash and fawning media coverage, achieving "plausible" status


[Appreciate relentless Tom Hoch coverage? Support Wedge LIVE!]

Like me, you may be grappling with the question: Why should I take mayoral candidate Tom Hoch seriously? He's kind of an uninspiring figure, running a conservative campaign by Minneapolis standards, and I don't know a single person who's supporting him.
