Minneapolis Mayor-elect Betsy Hodges asks Facebook friends for ideas

Got an idea for making the city of Minneapolis better?

Mayor-elect Betsy Hodges wants to hear them, and says her transition team will evaluate all the submissions.

She made the request to her Facebook friends this morning:

Hi there, Facebook friends! Please go to the link below and submit ideas you have for the transition or for Minneapolis. I’d like to hear what you’re thinking about!

And her page for online idea submissions says:

Have an idea for Mayor-elect Hodges’ transition team? Want to make a suggestion for Minneapolis’ future? Submit your thoughts on this page!

We really appreciate your willingness to share your hopes and dreams for our city. Your submission will be reviewed within several days by a member of Mayor-elect Hodges’ staff, though you may not be contacted regarding your idea due to the volume of submissions.

We value your input and look forward to hearing from you.

Some early suggestions posted to her Facebook page include: safety around schools and affordable housing.

Hodges was elected from a field of 35 candidates last month to replace Mayor R.T. Rybak, who is stepping down after three terms. She takes office Jan. 2.
