In a historic online forum for Mayoral candidates in Minneapolis and Saint Paul, OneMN.org and partners pose an important question not heard much during the campaign season - How will you grow Economic Assets to Achieve Shared Sustainable Prosperity?
OneMN.org, MetroIBA, Minnesota Metro Chapter - National Forum for Black Public Administrators, Common Cause of Minnesota, Everybody In, Main Street Alliance, Harrison Neighborhood Association (Minneapolis), St. Anthony Park Community Council (St Paul), and the Alliance for Sustainability have come together to ask you as future leaders about a key issue, ‘Shared Sustainable Prosperity’ for our communities.
What is ‘Shared Sustainable Prosperity’? It's the integrated development of all assets and groups within a community for collective economic and social growth. Its broad objective is to:
Activate people as assets with the resources to sustain a high quality of life,
Support small business effort to enhance its community,
Ensure all residents have access to essential educational opportunities,
Develop critical Infrastructure strategies and investments are made to ensure communities are connected to other efficiently, effectively, and equitably.
Candidates are requested to share their views on how they would create shared sustainable prosperity through their administrative actions, policy development with city council and other governmental partners, and develop ideas with the community itself.
Candidates are asked to upload a video with their policy proposals by Friday, October 13th 2017 at 5pm. The videos will be released for viewing to the partners and media partners on Tuesday, October 17th at 12 pm. The partners will hold a ‘Town Hall’ conversation on Thursday, October 19th at 12pm to discuss the videos and share our thoughts. The coalition is not endorsing or rating the candidate’s plans as a collective or individual entities. However, they are encouraging individuals to use these videos as a guide for their balloting and interaction with other voters.
