Hard to believe it, but the election is now just about two weeks away. Things remain as busy as ever.
The past week included a conversation with the St. Louis Park schools teacher union, the Park Association of Teachers, for them to share with their members and other Education Minnesota members who live in St. Louis Park.
Also, the local organization SLP Seeds held a meal and candidate forum. There were candidates for city council, mayor and school board there. It was nice for so many candidates to be there, but I think we all walked away impressed with the work of the boys and girls who have been involved with the organization.
And, then there was the Aquila PTO meeting. I walked away from that meeting realizing that the SLP schools are taking mental health pretty seriously these days. I am encouraged by this. I think there’s plenty more work, but I am glad to see that no one is shying away from the issue.
Finally, there was the city council candidate forum hosted by the League of Women Voters. It was a packed council chambers. So great to see so many people interested in our city council at-large and mayor races. And, encouraging to see so many people who are in the running.
More to come in the next few days. If you see me out and about make sure you say, “hi.” And let me know if there are any issues on your mind.
