Peggy Sue Got Elected

Peggy Flanagan, who was a year behind me at St. Louis Park High School, was elected to the Minneapolis school board last week as the leading vote-getter, despite being only 25 years old, having no children, and having just moved to Minneapolis. She also campaigned by emphasizing her Ojibwa roots, despite having a white mother, white stepfather, Korean brother, and the uber-Irish name “Peggy Flanagan.”

Still, congrats to Peggy, who once worked for one of my political heroes (Paul Wellstone), did her part to keep Minnesota as a blue state, and continues to bring honor to the alma mater of myself, Jeremy, and The Mustache.
