Conversation with Council Member Blong Yang

Our latest Inside City Hall podcast features a Q&A with City Council Member Blong Yang (5th Ward), who represents neighborhoods in North Minneapolis and a portion of the North Loop. 

Yang, chair of the Council’s Public Safety, Civil Rights & Emergency Management Committee, is the first Hmong-American elected to the Council. 

We talked about the challenges and opportunities in his ward, ideas for revitalizing West Broadway and the Council’s upcoming vote on the Southwest Light-Rail Transit project, among other things.
