Podcast #27 – Minneapolis Ward 10 with City Council Candidate Ken Bradley

The podcast this week is a conversation with Ken Bradley, who is running for Minneapolis City Council in Ward 10. Ken is a longtime environmental activist and organizer and his resumé is a who’s who of Minnesota environmental organizations, including the Sierra Club, the Minnesota Environmental Partnership, and Fresh Energy. His campaign platform for Ward 10, which runs from South East of Lake Calhoun up to the Whittier neighborhood, emphasizes sustainable energy, environmental development, and alternative transportation.

Ken and I sat down last week in his home in the uptown neighborhood, to talk about his ideas for Minneapolis, the definition of sustainable development, and the frustrating challenges of taking the bus from uptown. We even ended by exchanging our favorite transit jokes. I hope you enjoy our conversation.
