Lnp chooses councillor to contest dawson, alice reardon to stand as councillor of city of goshen, peter berman to run for mayor of goshen
Alderman Michael Bostwick said his choice of a new mayor of Minneapolis has a lot to do with the choices his colleagues make, but there is no single explanation.
"I'm more focused on my city," said Bostwick, 54, who is running to replace Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn. "When I look back on 10 years and that's how I look back at the whole thing, I realize we're working on different things. It's complicated, and it's time to move forward as a city and as people."
Bostwick's opponent, Jim Cottrell, is another candidate seeking the job of Minneapolis' 14th mayor. The two face off Saturday in a race with little history of previous mayoral bids, which has not been widely anticipated since both incumbents announced their re-election bids last month.
Bostwick declined to discuss Cottrell, but noted that several members of the City Council have already won election after years in office.
"It's our job to keep doing what we're doing."
The city of 13 million residents has been in turmoil since last summer, when city officials charged with overseeing development in a swath of vacant downtown properties went on sick leave.
Since that time, there has been unrest and violent protests, even as the U.S. Justice Department has recommended reforms and the U.S. Senate has agreed to hold hearings on issues affecting the federal housing authorities.
In August, the city announced plans to sell the historic Ruppert building to a group of investors, and a coalition of more than 20 groups joined to petition the mayor and council to block plans.
Cottrell, a former mayoral candidate, was elected city chair in March, taking over in the place of incumbent Mayor Christopher Coleman, an African-American.
Bostwick said Bostwick believes his fellow council members and councilors, including Cottrell and John Collins, voted in favor of the sale of the complex. He declined to discuss Cottrell's specific reasons for support or the mayor's campaign.
A campaign announcement will occur Saturday, he said.
Bostwick was mayor of the mostly white suburb of North Central Minnesota for 10 years. He said he didn't believe he is capable of running for an unprecedented number of elections, and he won't "go into anything that I haven't already prepared for."
"I don't think it's my place," Bostwick said, "but I will serve as the city's spokesperson and advocate for the working, middl

St George's Park had only been hit twice in the first-half of yesterday's game and Newcastle were without five of their starting side вЂ“ the lone goal came courtesy of James McClean, but a couple of well-placed tackles forced Newcastle defender Andy Carroll into a header.
For a while it looked as though the game would go to penalties but when Newcastle went back on the front foot, substitute Steven Taylor was able to find the net вЂ“ a superb strike.
There was only an 8-1 aggregate at St George's Park for Newcastle and the players were clearly exhausted after three games, but this was a superb start to the season for Alan Pardew's men and I am sure they will have a great season next term.
Watching a match of this standard in front of a crowd of 25,096 at St George's Park is impressive, so much so that it made me wonder why there was no game at home this weekend to celebrate the occasion.
So far the only teams with goals in the league this season have been Hull City, Fulham, West Ham and Crystal Palace.
It will be interesting to see how the fans react to this performance given that Newcastle's last away game was at Blackburn back in December and the club would rather lose a game like this at home to a team that they have to beat than a team which they have beaten every game.
One more game will be a wonderful start to the season for Alan Pardew Newcastle Jets
The stats you need to know
вЂў Newcastle have now won 9 straight away matches (13 wins, 11 draws, 2 losses, 6 draws at home).
вЂў The hosts held a 6-3 advantage at Turf Moor.
вЂў Andy Carroll scored his first goal since March 11 this season when he slotted the ball into the back of the net following a good pass from Ben Woodburn.
вЂў Alan Pardew's men have not lost a away Premier League match since October 11, 2013, when they drew 2-1 at Swansea.
