Nora Slawik, Chair, Metropolitan Council
Imagine being the head coordinator for a region comprising seven counties and 188 different communities. Now imagine trying to those places to work together on everything from housing and land stewardship to transportation and energy. That’s new Metropolitan Council Chair Nora Slawik’s job. We’ll ask her how she’s enjoying playing out the real life version of Sim City and whether we can still add a Southwest Lightrail stop by the Bryant Lake Bowl.
Cast: Heather Meyer, Kelly Kohlbacher, Jim Robinson, Fred Cheng, Brandon Boat, Tane Danger, Dennis Curley
