Betsy Hodges ’91 Elected Mayor of Minneapolis

Posted November 7th, 2013 at 12:08 pm.

Described in the Minneapolis StarTribune as, “a hard-nosed budget wonk driven by her concern for the less fortunate,” Besty Hodges ’91, won majority votes in nearly every precinct in the city to become Minneapolis’ mayor-elect on Tuesday.

From the StarTribune:

“She’s a fan of NASCAR who wears Wonder Woman T-shirts beneath blazers, a progressive activist with a penchant for wading into messy political issues at City Hall, and a DFLer whose bid for mayor was opposed by the establishment of her party.”

Hodges majored in both psychology and sociology at Bryn Mawr.
