City council races: who is running in wards 7 and 13?


In Ward 13, Kate Mortenson has joined the race and will be challenging incumbent Linea Palmisano for the city council seat she currently holds. Mortenson lives in Lynnhurst and is the founder of iPondr@Work, an education company.

Two new candidates announced that they will be running for City Council on southwest wards this year. For Ward 7, where Lisa Goodman is not seeking reelection, Katie Cashman has announced her candidacy and will be joining Scott Graham and Kenneth Foxworth (no image available) in seeking election to be the new council member. Cashman lives in Stevens Square-Loring Heights and works at the Minnesota Center for Environmental Advocacy. Graham lives in Cedar-Isle-Dean, west of Cedar Lake, and owns Uptown Reality. The Democratic-Farmer-Labor party also reports that Foxworth is seeking the party’s endorsement for the Ward 7 Council race. He has no apparent website and has not registered his campaign with the state.
