NOTE from Bob Johnson host of A Democracy Town Hall...
To get elected Carter claimed he was concerned about gentrification of ward 1, however, Carters history on the council suggest he isn't concerned about anything other than his career.
Evidence in the federal fair housing lawsuits against the city of Saint Paul lead concerned citizens to believe the city willfully increased property values forcing low income minorities out of the east side and Frogtown.
