St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman easily won DFL endorsement for a third term at the city convention on Saturday.
He received the nomination by acclamation. So far, only real estate agent Tim Holden has said he will run against Coleman in November.
For the school board nomination, DFL delegates at the Washington Technology Magnet School on Rice Street considered six candidates for three seats.
Getting the nod were first-time candidate Chue Vue, an attorney, along with incumbents Jean O’Connell (the school board chair) and John Brodrick. The other candidates were David Martinez, Luis Ortega and Sarah Lechowich.
The city DFL’s nominating work isn’t finished, though. Next month there will be a nominating convention to endorse a candidate in Ward 1 to replace Melvin Carter III, who will step down from his council seat next month to take a job with the state Education Department. The city council is expected to appoint an interim candidate to hold the seat until the November election.
St. Paul Republicans also will consider a nomination for the council seat.
