Wedge to the MAX!

We've come to the end of a long, weird, grueling election season. I’ve had some days off. The team is newly invigorated.

We’re pleased that Tom Hoch wasted an unprecedented amount of his own money not becoming the next mayor of Minneapolis. My pumpkin, Mayor Betsy Hodges, is off to the compost bin. And the actual Betsy Hodges is probably planning a Hawaiian vacation. No more Barb, no more Blong -- a striking change in leadership for north Minneapolis. John Quincy lost his seat in Ward 11, and on the bright side, I imagine he probably never had strong feelings either way about that.

As we contemplate the transition from one city council to another in 2018, we’re declaring this "Wedge to the MAX Week." Our work is not sustainable without your support. Getting to 200 total subscribers is the next step. If you value what Wedge LIVE! adds to the local conversation, please subscribe on Patreon.

You can send a message that you're serious about us doing serious coverage in 2018. Seriously!

Did you know 32% of the Wedge LIVE! audience is millionaires? That's what Twitter says. Twitter don't lie. So pony up, cheapskates. It's time to Wedge to the MAX. Subscribe today!

Finally, a sincere thanks to all our existing subscribers! You're amazing. Anyone who says people won't support hyperlocal news with real dollars is a liar. (And if Carol Becker is reading this, I want to make it clear that not a dollar of subscriber money was spent on my vanity write-in campaign for Board of Estimate and Taxation. Call off the lawyers, Carol.)
