Ward 3 in St. Paul is bordered by West 7th Street, Summit Avenue, Lexington Parkway and the Mississippi River and is home to Highland Park and the site of the soon to be closed Ford Plant. It is also home to Incumbent 3rd Ward Council Member Pat Harris and challenger Gerald Mischke. As of late August, Mischke has ceased campaigning efforts after being laid off from his position at the Star Tribune. Harris, who has held this office for 8 years continues campaigning, highlighting it as an opportunity to reach out to people.
