Podcast #127: Saint Paul’s 6th Ward with Nelsie Yang

Nelsie YangI am happy to bring you a conversation with Nelsie Yang, who is a candidate for City Council in Saint Paul’s Sixth Ward, which covers the large northern part of the East Side. Yang is a community organizer who is advocating for economic sustainability, affordable housing, and better public safety on the East Side. We sat down the other day at Caydence Coffee and Records on Payne Avenue to chat about her campaign, her background, and her vision for the neighborhood.

I hope you enjoy the conversation, and don’t forget to vote on November 5th.
