Thirty five people are running for Mayor of Minneapolis this fall. That’s a crowded field – the largest in the city’s history. One person who was in the race early on but dropped out is Jim Thomas, a special education teacher in the Minneapolis School District. He was a first-time candidate for political office. Running as a DFL’er, Thomas played a role in the city convention earlier this summer that left the mayoral race without an endorsed candidate.
