Maplewood City Council Policy & Politics


Why Not Run on His Record?

While Bob Cardinal seems to focus his entire campaign on the trash issue (which will be decided one way or another before any new councilmember takes office), it's conspicuous how little he talks about any specific accomplishments in his six years as mayor.  Perhaps there's not much to crow about?

Here's one fun fact: In just a single year when Bob was mayor, the Maplewood property tax levy was increased by a larger percentage (15.8%) than all four of my years combined (average 3.55% per year).

Yeah, I can see how reminiscing about the Cardinal Years might not be a winning strategy for him. He might not want to remind voters why they ranked Diana Longrie above him...twice.
