Endorsement: Mitra Jalali Nelson for Ward 4 on the St. Paul City Council (and Pumpkin of the Year 2019)

In case you missed it, Mitra Jalali Nelson is the Wedge LIVE! 2019 Pumpkin of the Year. We encourage residents of St. Paul’s Ward 4 to send her back for a full term on the City Council. She was first elected just over a year ago in a special election.

Mitra is a leader on housing, safe/sustainable transportation, and police accountability. She’s an organizer who works hard to expand who participates, and who is served by, city government. She is forthright about her values, and committed to fighting for that vision.

Mitra leads with uncommon courage on St Paul’s City Council. She stands up for her values even when it’s hard. The movement she’s building in St Paul for a more equitable, sustainable and affordable Twin Cities sets a powerful example for the right way to do local politics.

On election day in St. Paul, make Mitra your first choice in Ward 4.
