    Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges Looks Forward

    After a sound victory in the Nov. 5 election, Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges is looking forward to working on her goals for education, building relationships with the Native American community in Minneapolis and across the state.
    In an interview, Hodges said she intends on keeping pre-Kindergarten development a priority as a means to make sure education is ingrained in children from an early age. “My Cradle to K Initiative, I’m really excited about. We already do good work here at the city, working with pregnant mothers and those children in the first couple years of life to make sure they’re growing in a healthy way and have good, healthy brain development and seeing what we can do to bring people together to forward the agenda to expand that program,” she said. “So I’m excited about that because that’s the first disparity that a kid faces, are they getting a healthy start, do they have the brain development that they need?”
