Meet the School Board candidates

In October, all six candidates for the Minneapolis School Board visited the Southwest Journal offices to record videos for our website. All candidates had just one minute on camera to say whatever they wanted to voters. Take the time to watch these candidate videos, and then visit our 2008 Voters’ Guide to learn more about the candidates and their priorities for the district.
