Kris Brogan (who I've never heard of outside of city council races) is the only candidate foolish enough to run against City Council President Barb Johnson and may God have mercy on Brogan's soul. Former "candidate for everything" Troy Parker has apparently learned a lifetime of hard lessons and doesn't appear to be running for anything at the moment.
Very disheartening for bloggers, I might add, but the fees for Minneapolis political races went up recently and, well, I'm just saying.
The fees went up.
But in regard to Kris Brogan...
Though Brogan's chances of winning are roughly the same as her chances of transforming into a flying unicorn, all the same a political opposition blog has appeared and somebody sent me a link. For the record, I hereby truthfully declare that I had nothing to do with this blog, though I probably bear part of the blame for the "blogification" of North Minneapolis council races.
The mysterious new blog (click here for a link) is called The Brogan Files, which reminds me vaguely of the old television series The Rockford Files. Here is an embed of the opening intro, which was one of my father's favorite television shows and, I must say, is quite a blast from the past.
Because The Brogan Files comments on political issues that touch upon North Minneapolis, I have included it in my blog roll for the time being.
