MinnPost Social: Peter Callaghan to discuss Minneapolis city election on August 7

Tickets for MinnPost members are now available for our next MinnPost Social on August 7, featuring reporter Peter Callaghan discussing the 2017 Minneapolis mayoral election and more.

With thirteen council seats, 11 mayoral candidates, one ranked-choice voting system and zero DFL endorsements, this fall’s Minneapolis city election is shaping up to be as unpredictable as ever. To make sense of it all, MinnPost local government reporter Peter Callaghan will break down the races and take your questions at our latest MinnPost Social, on Monday, August 7. MinnPost Editor Andrew Putz will moderate the event, which will also feature a guest appearance by MinnPost state government reporter Briana Bierschbach.

Sponsored by RBC Wealth Management, this MinnPost Social will take place at Surly Brewing Company in Minneapolis, on August 7 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Light appetizers will be provided.
