There’s one main reason why you should care about our local elections: The seven people on our Red Wing City Council are responsible for voting on just about every important decision our City makes.
They vote on:
- The city budget and how your tax dollars get spent.
- What projects get planned and completed.
- Steps that guide:
- Economic development
- Environmental practices
- Housing projects
- Transportation opportunities
- Hundreds of other big and small decisions
In short, the people on the City Council affect people’s daily lives and the community’s long-range future more than you might expect. If you live or work in Red Wing, you should absolutely care about who runs and gets elected to our City Council.
There will be three City Council seats and a Mayor seat open in the General Election for 4-year terms starting in 2021.
