IRV Supporters Dominate Take Action Screening

by Gena Berglund

Nearly all the City Council candidates that screened for the TakeAction Minnesota endorsement on February 19 expressed support for Instant Runoff Voting.

Those candidates who unequivocally support Instant Runoff Voting are Bernie Hesse and Randy Schubring from Ward 4; David Haas from Ward 5 and Pakou Hang from Ward 6.

Ward 4 candidate Russ Stark and Ward 1 candidate Melvin Carter also stated support for IRV.

Lee Helgen, the Ward 5 incumbent, told TakeAction members that he needs more time to study the proposal before making a decision to support it.
