ST. PAUL NOTES | Yes, there’s an election coming

St. Paul is pretty much a one-party town, and if you have to ask which party, you must be from somewhere else. One (anonymous) political activist told me the decisions that matter were made back in January or, at the latest, in June at the ward conventions. But hope springs eternal, and so do candidates.

Twenty candidates have filed for city council and eleven for school board, with a little more than three months until the November 8 election. The election will decide all seven city council seats and four school board seats. Six of the seven city council seats have incumbents, and there are two school board incumbents.

This year, the Green Party is making a try with four endorsed candidates.

Green Party candidate Johnny Howard is running against incumbent Melvin Carter in Ward 1, as are a couple of candidates who aren’t serious enough to have websites yet.

In Ward 2, incumbent Dave Thune is challenged by Green Party candidate Jim Ivey, as well as perennial candidate and litigant Sharon Anderson and two more.

Ward 3, the only city council seat without an incumbent, has no Green Party candidate, but may have an interesting race between Chris Tolbert, who won the DFL endorsement over John Manillo, after three rounds of voting. Manillo is running without the endorsement, saying that there were “numerous irregularities and convention rule violations that tainted the endorsement process” at the convention. (Also running are Libertarian Tylor Slinger and Eve Stein.)

In Ward 5, neither incumbent Lee Helgen nor challenger Amy Brendmoen got an endorsement at the DFL convention, and they’ll go head-to-head in November.

Incumbent Dan Bostrom is challenged by Green Party candidate Bee Xiong in Ward 6.

Current city council president Kathy Lantry is unopposed in Ward 7.

In the school board election, Anne Carroll and Keith Hardy are incumbents. Mary Doran and Louise Seeba have DFL endorsements, and Devin Miller is the Green Party candidate for school board.

All candidates, with information from the Ramsey County election website. (A couple of the websites aren’t working, and I corrected URLs for two that I managed to locate in slightly different spots than listed officially.)
