Ward 5 Candidate Forum on Climate, Housing and Energy Justice

What will Ward 5 prioritize and prepare for over the next four years?

Come listen to candidates seeking to represent Ward 5 on City Council as they answer questions about how meeting Minneapolis Clean Energy Partnership & Climate Action Plan goals and goals intersects with multiple important voter concerns including renters rights, economic justice, home health, racial equity, community engagement and our city-wide conversation on affordable housing. Ward 5 is also an area seeing a breakthrough on workforce development for clean energy jobs.

In addition to prepared questions, there will be time for audience questions and informal post-forum conversation.

Confirmed candidates: Raeisha Williams For Minneapolis City Council, Ward 5 and Jeremiah Ellison for Ward 5 with written statements on the issues from candidates who cannot attend.

Co-hosted by Community Power (formerly Minneapolis Energy Options) and MN350 who have been hosting a series similar Q & A forums at the Ward and Mayoral level.

If you are not able to make this particular evening, help us spread the word to build up attendance, and encourage our next local elected leaders to provide proactive, visionary leadership for a resilient clean energy future in Minneapolis!

**Community Power & MN350 do NOT endorse candidates. The purpose of these events is to highlight the importance and connectedness of local energy issues, and give a platform for residents to educate themselves about what city candidates plan to work on and prioritize over the next four years**
