This week’s podcast is a conversation with Roger Meyer, the Green Party candidate running for Mayor of St Paul. Roger Meyer is a longtime activist in the Merriam Park neighborhood, and has worked as a consultant for the YMCA and many district councils on issues ranging from mental health, transportation, to education.
Fellow Streets.mn author Nathaniel Hood and I sat down with Roger last week at Cahoots Coffee Shop on Selby Avenue to talk about his campaign platform. We had a conversation about transportation, the need to focus on local businesses, and Roger’s “big ideas” community outreach initiative. Roger is just kicking off his campaign to challenge incumbent Mayor Chris Coleman in the city mayoral election this November. I hope you enjoy our conversation.
