The City Council makes important decisions about our city from a $15 minimum wage to funding for the police. In 2017, all 13 City Council seats and the mayor are up for election -- and we have an opportunity to elect candidates who will transform our city into one of the most boldly progressive in the country and win real gains for our communities. This year, NOC is making our first ever endorsements in Minneapolis city council races.
