St Paul Mayoral hopeful mentions need for broadband

I like to pick up on the politicians who mention broadband as a topic worth supporting. In am MPR debate for candidates for St Paul Mayor, Tom Goldstein mentioned broadband…

DFLer Tom Goldstein addressed his electability. He’s run repeatedly for office, and while he earned a term on the school board, he lost a re-election bid. Goldstein said it wasn’t about just him, but that he had a clear plan for the city.

“It’s a very thoughtful plan, about how we do equity. About the need for broadband, the need for job creation,” he said. “I’m the only person here who has actually run a business and managed people.”
