Minnesota Report

As of now, there will be two different referendums on the ballot in Minneapolis that effectively have cross purposes. One, proposed by the Minneapolis Charter Commission, would change the city structure to giving the more power to the mayor amending its weak-mayor system. The other, which could suffer a veto from Mayor Jacob Frey (DFL-Mpls) would abolish the current Minneapolis Police Force and install new Department of Public Safety.

This is an example of how the Mill City is in its own perilous position when it comes to decision-making. With the strength of the decisions in the hands of a majority of 13 people (Minneapolis City County) when 7 decide the matter is over.
