Podcast #115 – Ramsey County’s 3rd District with Trista Matas-Castillo

This week’s episode features Trista Matas-Castillowho is running for Ramsey County Commissioner in the 3rd District, which covers a big chunk of the northern neighborhoods of Saint Paul. Most people in Ramsey County cannot even name a County Commissioner, and yet county governments do a ton of work to help people and govern transportation decisions in our cities and towns.

We sat down in her campaign office on Rice Street the other day to chat about her background, what Ramsey County does, and which County issues she is focusing on in her campaign this summer. I hope you enjoy the conversation.
