Minneapolis will elect a new city council on November 5th. Some of the wards are hotly contested, and in several cases the incumbent city council member failed to get the DFL party’s endorsement for re-election.

Robert Lilligren recently sat down with KFAI’s Cynthia Montana, who asked him to explain why he’s running.
