Chris Coleman

City of St. Paul

Three-term mayor Chris Coleman long has advocated for infrastructure spending, including the Central Corridor (Green Line) light rail that links St. Paul and Minneapolis. After years of struggles, downtown St. Paul is experiencing a resurgence, with the opening of CHS Field, new restaurants and housing units. This year, a development plan finally emerged for renovating the vacant Macy’s property. In the Midway district, Coleman secured development of a Major League Soccer stadium, which was originally targeted for Minneapolis. Buildout of the former Ford site in Highland Park also is high on his agenda.
