Video: Meet the District 3 County Commissioner candidates

Video interviews with the four candidates running for former County Commissioner Gail Dorfman's seat


We recently invited the four candidates running for Hennepin County’s District 3 board seat to the Journals’ office for short video interviews.

Candidates include former state Rep. Marion Greene, former state Sen. Ken Kelash, St. Louis Park City Council Member Anne Mavity and Hennepin County prosecutor Ben Schweigert.

The candidates are running for the spot recently vacated by Gail Dorfman who has moved on to a new job as executive director of St. Stephen’s Human Services. The county’s third district includes St. Louis Park and southwest Minneapolis neighborhoods.

A primary for the race is set for April 29 and a special election planned for May. 13.
