Hello, Everyone! Today’s featured mayor is none other than my mayor, Minneapolis Mayor Mr. R T Rybak. Happy Birthday, Mr. Mayor!
Wiki: Raymond Thomas “R. T.” Rybak, Jr. (born November 12, 1955) is the 46th and current Mayor of the city of Minneapolis, Minnesota. In the 2001 election Rybak defeated incumbent Sharon Sayles Belton by a margin of 65% to 35%; the widest margin in city history for a challenge to an incumbent. He took office in January 2002, and won a second term in November 2005 and a third in November 2009.
Before being elected mayor Rybak worked in journalism, business and activism. The first mayor of a large U.S. city to endorse Barack Obama‘s 2008 campaign for President, Rybak is one of five Vice Chairs of the Democratic National Committee.
