If Only Our City Election Was Going To Be This Interesting

Posted By on Fri, Sep 13, 2013 at 5:00 PM

With the pension-reform initiative apparently off the November ballot, this year's city election is looking very sleepy. Only two of three incumbents up for reelection are being challenged and the props are essentially technical mumbo-jumbo that aren't likely to arouse a lot of passion among voters.

And we can be pretty sure we're not going to see anything like the above ad, in which Minneapolis dark horse mayoral candidate Jeff Wagner emerges half-naked from a lake, promises to stay out of strip clubs and tells voters to "wake the fuck up."
