At least it will be amusing

If you thought Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges wasn't entertaining enough with her Lucille Ball-meets-Jiang Qing persona, here comes some competition:
Nekima Levy-Pounds, a civil rights activist and critic of local police practices, will announce Tuesday that she is running for mayor of Minneapolis.

Levy-Pounds, 40, an attorney who stepped down in October as president of the Minneapolis NAACP, said she’ll make her formal announcement at a news conference in front of the Minneapolis police Fourth Precinct on the anniversary of the fatal shooting of Jamar Clark. A white Minneapolis police officer shot Clark, a black man, in a scuffle Nov. 15, 2015. His death prompted protests and an 18-day encampment outside the precinct in north Minneapolis.
Might be time to bring back the pirate guy.

Levy-Pounds and Alonda Cano will likely appeal to/confuse the same bloc of voters. Possibly a good thing.Can't wait foe the "Not my Mayor" protesters to block Minneapolis streets.
