A run for St. Paul mayor this year is “the biggest contribution I could think of to make to my city,” Elizabeth Dickinson, a resident of the West Side since 1998, told us.
Dickinson — a motivational speaker, author, life coach and a veteran of past campaigns for city office — plans to seek Green Party endorsement. She is among five mayoral candidates meeting recently with us for initial informal conversations.
At a time when divisiveness reigns in state and national politics, Dickinson, 56, said she finds a “huge hunger for positivity.” She says she would bring a “different way of governing,” inclusive and transparent.
