So the DFL caucus is tonight, and I am actually going to attend, in a possibly vain attempt to get rid of Meg Tuthill. While I agreed with her on some things (like keeping a Trader Joe’s off of Lyndale), she seems too focused on insignificant problems, such as noise levels of rooftop patios. In addition, with RT on his way out, we need some serious leadership when it comes to improving our city’s bicycling infrastructure and moving forward with a cleaner environment.
So can social media predict civic engagement? Believe it or not, this question has been asked by every lazy journalist ever! At the time of this writing it looks like Ken Bradley is currently in the lead. As of this writing, he’s got 1,784 Twitter followers and 485 “Likes”! Second place goes to Kendal Killian and his 1,044 Twitter followers and 422 Likes. Lisa Bender is up next with 154 Twitter followers and 314 Likes. And then there’s Meg Tuthill – she has no Twitter account (though there is a really weak parody account) and 167 Likes.
So there you have it – a pointless comparison of pointless metrics. Stay tuned to learn how this one weird tip can impact your LinkedIn connections!
