Inclusion, employment and community consolidate the agenda of incoming St. Paul, Minn. mayor’s Melvin W. Carter III.
For a candidate who called for police reform, and the first African American mayor, Carter works to recreate a city struggling with issues of inequity in education, employment and public safety.
On his site, Carter announced a mass hiring to usher in a new slate of new government employees. Explaining his strategy, he says to Insight News:
“To build a St. Paul that works for all of us, City Hall must reflect and respond to everyone who calls our city home. This new community hiring effort delivers on the change that St. Paul residents are seeking. I encourage all interested candidates to submit their resumes for consideration as we begin building a city that works better for all of us.”
In whole, Carter hopes his hiring tactics brings about a more community-centered Administration.
