Mayor’s Blog – City Elections

Elections are over and according to the “unofficial” election results we have 2 new Council members that will be sworn in January 4, 2021.

Congratulations to Ann MacGregor and Cathleen Reffkin. I, too, will take the oath of office once again. I am excited to be serving another term as your Mayor.

As I stated, these are still “unofficial” results. Why is that? Hennepin County must count all ballots that are postmarked by Nov. 3rd and received by Nov. 10th. Once all the ballots are counted, the County must then certify the results to the cities and then the City Councils must “canvas” or certify the results. Our Council will do this at 1:00pm on Friday, November 13.

Minnetrista had a record turn out for elections this year. We traditionally have a high turn out but this year surpassed previous years with nearly 88% of registered voters going to the polls on election day, voting early in-person or by mail.

Thank you Minnetrista voters for making your voices heard.
