Minneapolis 5th ward candidate forum at The Capri


On Saturday, September 7th, Neighborhoods Organizing for Change hosted a candidate forum at the Capri for those running for the open 5th Ward seat. I captured the debates in their entirety and will post the footage.

The highlight, for some, was the event ending with each candidate doing what can only be described as a performance under the most liberal standards. Unfortunately, I received a call on my cell phone (which was used since the camera was out of juice by then) and Ian Alexander’s footage was interrupted. I will post all four performances if someone has a link to the full footage. Otherwise, it’s not fair to watch the razor-thin line between loving homage and untalented desecration known as candidate karaoke for only three of the four contestants.

The rest of the forum videos (minus karaoke, which deserves its own stand-alone post) are here.
