ICYMI: St. Paul Candidate Fair

Check out what the mayoral and school board candidates had to say about kids, families and other issues when they came to our candidate fair on October 14!

Complete with games and free food, this fair was an unconventional yet fun way to engage families and candidates in meaningful conversations. More than 80 East Side families participated, and 13 of 15 candidates came themselves or sent representatives. Our 20 outstanding volunteers made sure everything ran smoothly. Many thanks for all your hard work!
