Podcast #124 – Saint Paul’s Ward One with Liz De La Torre

Screen Shot 2019 06 20 At 1.07.54 PmToday I’m bringing you a conversation with Liz De La Torre, who is running for City Council in Saint Paul’s Ward 1.

I sat down with Liz a while back at the Heritage Tea House on University Avenue to talk about her campaign, her background working as a advocate for victims of domestic violence, and why she decided to run for City Council in Saint Paul. We had a nice conversation about her background and experience, what her platform looks like, and what her approach toward outreach and equity. Finally, we discussed affordable housing, transit, and other transportation questions that are central to her campaign.

This podcast is sponsored by the Saint Paul Flag. If you or someone you know is living in Saint Paul, go to this website and ask yourself if a Saint Paul flag is right for you.
