Chris Coleman


City of St. Paul




Coleman has provided calm, quiet leadership for his hometown since 2006. It’s an appropriate style for St. Paul, and there’s nothing wrong with that. True, the city continues to face challenges—most notably, what to do with the old Macy’s and Ford plant properties. But a new ballpark’s going up, Amtrak now comes into the restored Union Depot and Coleman helped keep University Avenue businesses from being derailed by the LRT construction. St. Paul keeps rolling.
