Hodges announces re-election bid as mayor of Minneapolis


Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges vowed to defend the city against the policies of president-elect Donald Trump as she kicked off her re-election bid Thursday evening, painting a bleak picture of what she sees as looming threats to the city.

After checking off accomplishments during her first term — including passing an earned sick time ordinance, equipping Minneapolis police officers with body cameras and leading fundraising for Downtown East Commons — Hodges turned to the aftermath of November’s presidential election.

“We know that progressive cities like Minneapolis, and those of us who love them and tend to them, will be under attack under President Trump,” Hodges told about 40 supporters who gathered at Urban Ventures in south Minneapolis. “These times require a mayor who can continue to lead the way toward making Minneapolis a shining beacon of progressive light and accomplishment in a time of authoritarian darkness.”
