Podcast #47 – Minneapolis Mayoral Forum on the Future of Transportion

The podcast this week is a special one, a recording of the recent Minneapolis Mayoral Forum co-sponsored by Streets.mn, Urban MSP, the Minneapolis Bicycle Coalition, and a few different student groups from the University of Minnesota. It was held last Tuesday at the Humphrey School on the West Bank campus, and we were delighted to have five different candidates running for Mayor on stage. The discussion included Cam Winton, (a former podcast guest), Betsy Hodges, Dan Cohen, Bob Fine, and Stefanie Woodruff, calmly moderated by Paula Pentel (another former podcast guest). (NOTE: Mark Andrew responded positively to our requests was unable to attend because of a previous commitment.) Our forum covered bicycling, parking policy, rail transit, transportation equity, and funding challenges, and I hope you’ll find it interesting. I know I enjoyed the experience.

I hope you enjoy the conversation. The link to the audio is here. Subscribe to the whole darn panel on the podcast feed.
