Saying that it is “completely unacceptable” for people in Minneapolis to have to still fight to put food on the table and struggle to find affordable housing, Nekima Levy-Pounds announced today she will run for mayor a post currently held by Betsy Hodges.
Levy-Pounds made her announcement outside the Minneapolis 4th Police Precinct, the same place where she and many others had staged protests a year ago when Jamar Clark was gunned down by police.
