Re: What's Your Take On Minneapolis E-Democracy?

In the interest of transparency, I am John Edwards, and I sign all my posts at wedgelive.com , where I have been producing content about local and neighborhood politics since 2014. In 2014, vox.com launched and became a popular source of news about national politics and policy. In 2015, Carol Becker...

Re: Minneapolis City Council and Park Board Elections 2017

David, the original post has either been deleted or locked down with privacy settings. The author of the Facebook post she's commenting on was LHENA's crime committee chair person beginning in early 2015. In the summer of 2015, he was working with Sara on spending LHENA money to pay for MPD bike cop...

Re: Minneapolis City Council and Park Board Elections 2017

Back on the topic of Ward 10 candidate Saralyn Romanishan. Here she is answering the question nobody was asking: Is equitable engagement of underrepresented groups a holocaust on white homeowners? http://i.imgur.com/fCXJOyE.png LINK: https://www.facebook.com/saralyn.romanishan/posts/523589191126694?...

Re: Minneapolis City Council and Park Board Elections 2017

I have heard wedgelive takes photos of women in their apartments. Their are photos of apartment windows on his page, thus it must be true? Seriously, if you want to discredit the woman, use something you can back up. This is petty stuff you can find on anyone, including Bender. Hi Everyone. Wedge L...

It's tonight! Not next week. Free pizza will be cold by then. Starts at 6 PM in the Jefferson School cafeteria. I'd recommend you show up no later than 730. Voting is at 8.

Re: 2320 Colfax Avenue Apartments

But instead of explaining things in a (hopefully balanced) way like above, Wedgelive has gems like these: a few were so bent out of shape at the November meeting that you'd think the money was going straight to them and their friends That's just unnecessarily inflammatory. Money goes to neighborhoo...

I've been informed by a neighbor that the LHENA meeting will be held at the VFW. I doubt LHENA will post this information anywhere, so pass it on.

Re: Theater Garage Marquee Apartments - (Franklin & Lyndale)

Does anyone know who the youngish guy at the table wearing the blue sweatshirt is? He spoke very eloquently towards the end of the meeting about loving the neighborhood because he can walk to local businesses, and how density makes that possible. Made a really good spokesman for the pro-development ...

Second, someone said a gym owner was there against this, was the gym The Movement Minneapolis? I'm pretty sure that's the name of the gym he gave. Gym owner said he had safety concerns regarding a female trainer he employs who would have to park in a rear alley. I believe the response he got was th...

Re: Theater Garage Marquee Apartments - (Franklin & Lyndale)

1. I hate that the developer caved to neighbors and said they will bundle parking costs with the rental charge. This is a really unnecessary concession. All new apartments with structured parking charge separately for car storage. We are finally moving away from bundling that cost, and this develop...
