Welcome to the new Second Ward blog. I’m Cam, Council Member from Ward Two, and I’ll be posting here regularly. My aide Robin will be posting here from time to time as well.
My hope for this space is that it will be a forum for civil, constructive discourse focused on how we can make Minneapolis, and Ward Two in particular, a better place for everyone who lives, works, learns and plays here.
I want this blog to be a place where I can share some of what our office is working on, my priorities and concerns, and explain the reasoning behind some of my votes and other actions. I also want to share some of the day-to-day experiences of this challenging, fascinating job and the intriguing world that is City Hall.
But it’s just as important to me to hear from you. What do you think of what I’m up to? What should I be working on? Where am I right, and where am I wrong? When posting, please know that your comments are being screened, so don’t waste your time swearing or libeling people – no one but Robin will see it. Please do feel free to criticize me though. We won’t edit out anything for that sort of content.
Check out my profile for phone numbers and email, and feel free to get hold of me anytime. Thanks for visiting and I hope to hear from you soon.
