Welcome to the Blog

Hi everyone, it's R.T.
Thanks to all of you who came to my kickoff event yesterday
and who sent me emails. I put a copy of my speech up on the site http://www.rtrybak.com/ and would like your take.

I like campaigning because I can lay out my thoughts for the next term. But the campaign is also a good time to talk over new issues. Anything you think I should talking about?

    Mayor,

    First, thanks for using a blog. This is a great way to engage people.

    I do have a question, with the current situation in St. Paul can you maintain a strong budget?

     
  • At January 31, 2005 at 5:07 PM, Blogger R.T. Rybak said…

    Chris asked if we can keep a strong budget considering the situation in St. Paul. The answer is yes...I've brought in five straight balanced budgets even though the state has cut $37 million a year. But one of the big problems is that the state's budget is in such a state of flux that it's hard to know what will happen next. The good news is that it appears in this next session there is not a lot of desire to cut even more from local government aid.

    If you want to read more about this I have a section on the website that goes into what we are doing on the budget. Go to "working for Minneapolis, under More With Less."

    Hi Mayor,

    Thank you so much for running again. I am fairly new to Minneapolis and I love it here. I have seen you many times all over the city, and I have had the opportunity to hear you speak. I really like your ideas for the future of our city and I think that you have done great things so far. And thank you for all the hard work you did on the Kerry Campaign. I look forward to the next 4 years with you as our Mayor!!

    Karen

    I'm 15, can the Mayor lower the drinking age?

    Mayor
    Congratulations for declaring on running again.

    Wouldn't this be a good time to focus on creating a Shared Services approach both within the county and perhaps with Ramsey County. The duplication of infrastructure costs is wasting all taxpayers money and probably creating inefficiencies.
    Thank you.
    Ron Lindwall

    This is in response to Karen's comment. RT really is all over the place and is really engaged in the city!

    I'm so happy that he's OUR mayor!!!

     
  • At January 31, 2005 at 5:17 PM, Blogger R.T. Rybak said…

    I don't think the Mayor can do that but if it works, how about this.....If I lower the drinking age AND voting age at once, will you promise to go to you caucuses March 1. I think it's the least you can do.

     
  • At January 31, 2005 at 5:18 PM, Blogger R.T. Rybak said…

    Thanks for this Karen. Really happy you're here in Minneapolis. The Kerry effort was worth it for all of us...even though he didn't get elected the campaign helped elect some great new people to the legislature and laid the groundwork for more. The Dean campaign also brought a huge new wave of people into politics. I've learned over time that winning if the main thing but sometimes even when you gain something. Keep sending your ideas.

     
  • At January 31, 2005 at 5:19 PM, Blogger NicolasPenry said…

    Mayor, I'm wondering about your idea to have trolley's on the Greenway. I heard someone say that you wanted to that, and I'm just wondering how you think that will work.

     
  • At January 31, 2005 at 5:19 PM, Blogger R.T. Rybak said…

    I really like your comment about shared services. We have to push more of this. When Mike Opat was chair of the Hennepin County Board we were working with him on a number of these ideas.....and I also have discussed ideas like this with a new group I'm working with, the Metropolian Association of Mayors. In some cases, a large city like Minneapolis could expand its services to cover some suburbs...ie. the Minneapolis Fire Department could be providing services to some suburbs....In other case we may want to work together. I'm very open to these ideas, especially if it means we can deliver better services to people.

     
  • At January 31, 2005 at 5:23 PM, Blogger R.T. Rybak said…

    Nick asked about a trolley on the Midtown Greenway. This idea really came out of the great community work being led by the Midtown Greenway Coalition...a really wonderful group of citizens who have created the vision that led to the conversation of what was once an abandoned rail corridor into a bikeway through the city. Now the idea is to have a streetcar on the dedicated right of way next to the bike trail. In my last budget I allocated money to move forward on this idea.
    Think about how cool this could be: Take an LRT to the Greenway Streetcar, stop for lunch at the Global Marketplace at Midtown Exchange (the former Sears building), hop back on the streetcar and have dinner at Tin Fish on Lake Calhoun.
    Better, take the streetcar to work at Wells Fargo Mortgage.

    R.T,

    I have heard a lot about Affordable Housing issues, I was chating with a co-worker the other day and she said that Affordable Housing has improved since you have been in office. I have seen the numbers but what do they mean, is 2,100 good?

    Thanks

    You need to do more about airport noise...

     
  • At January 31, 2005 at 5:30 PM, Blogger R.T. Rybak said…

    I forgot to add on the Greenway Trolley post the link it can be with the bus rapid transit route proposed on 35W.

    I don't know how many people saw this last Friday but we won a big victory for bus rapid transit.

    A couple months back the department of transportation wanted the city to sign off on an expansion plan for the Crosstown. We said we wouldn't do it until there was transit worked into the Crosstown, 35W area...a bus rapid transit line on 35W, I believe is the only way the roadway can work...If the vision was to just add car lanes, they would be filled at Day One and the road would be obsolete from the second it opened.

    The good news is that--joined by---Sen. Scott Dibble and Rep. Frank Hornstein, CM Scott Benson and Robert Lilligren----we worked with suburban legislators and represenatives of Dakota County....and the Department of Transportation....and are coming to an agreement that could lead to bus rapid transit. Last Friday the Department of Transportation report said they, too , thought it was a good idea.

    That's progress because I think this is the first time since my dad's drug store was torn down for 35W in about 1965 that leaders at the city and state have all agreed that there needs to be mass transit on 35W. That's progress.

    Hi,
    I am a big fan of riding my bike everywhere since I don't have a car. I love what you have done for the "biking" community in Minneapolis. You have my vote for Mayor!!

    Need to fix the link to your website as it has an extra letter in it. Has www.rtyrybak.com instead of www.rtrybak.com

     
  • At January 31, 2005 at 5:37 PM, Blogger R.T. Rybak said…

    Did anyone else just have the system crash on them? I think we had so many people on at once it did a hickup....anyway....
    thanks for your comments about biking Brandon. Every year I do two budgets...the operation budget (this is where there is money for police, fire, administration, etc.) The other is the capital budget, which is for roads, bridges, etc.
    I mention this because in each of the capital budgets we have been moving forward more bike trails. I really believe this is very important...not only for recreation...we are the number one bike communter city in the country.
    This past year was espeically interesting because there was money for bike trails in northeast and north Minneapolis...two areas that have been underserved. In north Minneapolis we now have a community process to determine where the bike trails will go....That should be great because it looks as if we will have one from north to south....so people from neighborhoods like Camden and Lind Bohanan can get downtown to work...but also a couple east and west, to connect Wirth Park and the river.

    I was at your announcement yesterday, it was a great event. I enjoyed it so much, and WOW what a turn out! I know you have great ideas for our city, and I am glad that you are our Mayor!! What can I do to help?

    Andrea

     
  • At January 31, 2005 at 5:43 PM, Blogger R.T. Rybak said…

    Thanks for your great words, Andrea.
    First thing you can do to help is to go to the website and sign up for our email updates. This is imporant because it means we can sent you action alerts as soon as possible. Second, can you think of a few others who you can talk to about signing up too.

    There is also a section on the site to volunteer.

    And you could make a small contribution on line....any amount helps.

    And don't forget to go to your caucuses on March 1.

    Finally, keep sending me ideas....the more I get the better I can be so stay in touch!

    Do you have a Campaign office?

     
  • At January 31, 2005 at 6:21 PM, Blogger R.T. Rybak said…

    Janelle, thanks for your comments about One Stop....The idea behind One Stop, and its companion program One Call, is to make it easier for people to work and do business with the city. If you call the city, you shouldn't have to know a bunch of numbers...as of next year you should be able to just dial 311. If you do busienss with the city you should be able to go to the One Stop center. This initiative has been worked on by a large group of people....and it great effort but it should be worth it.

    I am sick and tired of the attacks by George W. Bush on the GLBT community. What can we do locally to protect our rights?

     
  • At January 31, 2005 at 6:29 PM, Blogger R.T. Rybak said…

    Goldstarfish asked about affordable housing.

    Since Jan of 2002 5,839 units of new housing started in the city. That's great because the market is saying that Minneapolis is a great place to build. My goal was to say that the city should be involved in the part of the market that the private sector was not taking care of so we created by Since Jan, 2002, the city has helped create 1,025 new units and support the renovation of 1,653 units of affordable housing. (We define affordable as that which is affordable for those making 50% or less than the metropolitan median income.) ..As I said in my speech yesterday (which you can read on the site...there is a link off the front page)....We now need to make sure we continue to work in this area, as well as take special care to also close the homeownership gap for commnities of color, help make sure we have a place that affordable in neighborhoods for seniors who helped build them and do more to help first time homebuyers.

     
  • At January 31, 2005 at 6:32 PM, Blogger R.T. Rybak said…

    Mark is right about the attacks on the GLBT community. I mentioned that in my speech yesterday. I can't think of a single neighborhood in Minneapolis where there haven't been SIGNIFICANT contributions by the GLBT community.....What would Minneapolis be like without the community?....It really made my blood boil to see politicans in the last election try to target the community to get votes....I think we saw some of the same things being done about immigrants. We can never waver in our support for people in our community who have done so much.

    There were some disparaging words earlier today about the ephemeral nature of blogging. I am glued to Josh Marshall's box score on the Social Security debate. I followed Daily KOS avidly during the campaign season.
    But I don't expect either to post that often on those national blogs or to anticipate a personal response from the people who anchor those outlets.

    This is different. I know R.T. as an individual and there's no discerable difference between what transpires between us in a conversation and what comes across the Internet from R.T. either to me directly - something that frankly still curls my toes - or in a more general posting to Minneapolis Issues.

    We expect mayors to be tightly scheduled, buffered by handlers and necessarily distanced from us locals by the complexities of a big city's public life. Not this mayor. He is forever trying out new ways to be visible and to participate in the social lives we lead, not just crisis management but fun stuff too. Indefatigable energy, Silly Willy, and occasionally iconoclastic to boot.

    I like R.T's personal style even if I get tired just thinking about his sometimes antic pace. He makes mistakes - as do we all - some folks are very cross with him - but I appreciate his mercurial temperament.
    All policy all the time can very wearing and I can't help but smile at some of the lighter moments these past years. He can also be incredibly serious and earnest and I think that's good role modeling for our younger set.

    This is R.T.'s blog, not mine, but I wanted to put my two cents in early while we're all thinking about the choices we'll have to make in the weeks and months ahead. We don't often see this kind of razzle-dazzle in our leadership and I think it's a good thing.

    I couldn't make it last night (knocked out by a cold), but I did take the chance to read the text of your speech. You covered a lot of topics with a positive, visionary approach that really got me excited about the future of Minneapolis. Even in times of financial strain, a city has to have vision, and you've brought that to Minneapolis time and time again.

    I can't wait to post a sign in my yard (I'm a first-time homeowner in Near-North) and volunteer for your campaign all the way back to office.

Sorry you couldn't make it last night...I went to your web page to send you an email...Great page but couldn't figure our how to contact you...So, a. thanks so much for volunteering and b. you can sign up...and get a lawnsign location (which is great) on the web site. Good luck at the restaurant

    I hope people have a chance to read the story in tomorrow's Star Tribune about trees. We have lost 10,000 (5,000 on private property, 5,000 on Park Board Property....ie. boulevards) in the past year. We had a press event today to call attention to it....and to talk about some of the ways we are approaching it. Boulevard trees are the responsibility of the Park Board. Board member John Erwin has been a great leader on this issue and he and I have been working for the past year on something called CityTrees, an effort to plant 5,000 new ones. This is being coordinated by a citizen committee....my appointee on this is a great citizen volunteer...Tracy Nordstrom. It's going to take a lot of money. I was in Washington a couple weeks ago and met with the U.S. Forest Service to see if we can leverage some federal help. But stay in touch with this issue because it's a very important challenge.
    By the way, if you see this on TV, or if there is a pictuer in the newspaper, you will see Elmer the Elm in the background. The secret is that the person in Elmer's outfit...I never got to formally meet him....is very brave. It's apparently really hot in there and in the middle of a press conference I heard this panting coming from Elmer's trunk. "Are you ok in there, Elmer," I asked. "Well, no I'm not," he said, so we got him out of there quick. Elmer seems to be ok but it would have been a bad omen to have Elmer pass out during a press conference on Dutch Elm.
    Anyway, if anyone knows the real Elmer, be real nice to him.

    Hoodia Diet is the solution for safe weight loss. Hoodia Gordonii contains a natural active ingredient, P57, which has only recently been identified. The P57 works as an appetite suppressant.

    Taking Hoodia Diet Tablets when you are hungry alleviates the feeling of hunger and so makes you less likely to snack between meals due to hunger.

    The Hoodia Gordonii Cactus has been used by the San indigenous people of South Africa for hundreds of years as an appetite suppressant and thirst quencher.

    Extracts from this succulent have shown in clinical trials on obese subjects to reduce caloric intake by 30% to 40%. Significant weight loss has resulted from such a drop in caloric intake.

    Therefore, Hoodia is one of the best and most powerful natural appetite suppressant available, if used in conjunction with any diet. Hoodia will help you to stop snacking between meals. It will also help you to reduce the amount that you eat at meal times.

    Going Raw for Weight Loss
    Monday, October 15, 2007 by: Angela Stokes
    (NewsTarget) How many overweight wild antelope have you ever seen? What about morbidly obese zebras waddling around the savannah? Wild animals don’t deal with overweight or obesity issues. Wild animals don’t usually eat cooked or processed foods. They eat raw foods, in their natural state and maintain ideal body weight. The human body is designed to run on the clean fuel of raw foods too, just like all the other animals. Through our experiments with cooking and processing foods however, we have moved ever further away from simplicity, towards the so-called ‘Franken-foods’ and we pay for it with our health. Our addictions to processed starches, refined sugars and greasy foods lead to widespread obesity, which we then try to ‘fix’ with yet more processed, chemical pills, powders and packet ‘diet’ foods.
    The majority of people in the UK and USA are dealing with overweight or obesity issues. The consequences are enormous – from increased illness and medical costs, to ‘lost’ work days, family tensions and more. The obesity epidemic infiltrates all aspects of life. Not surprisingly then, the weight loss market is one of the largest industries in the world and growing constantly. Bombarded with slimming plans, pills, powders, and pre-packaged, processed diet foods, slimmers fret about calories, fat grams, low-carb, no-carb and all number of issues. There are literally thousands of different diets available and a HUGE amount of conflicting information. It can be very confusing to decide how to lose weight.
    In contrast, a raw food lifestyle is all about keeping it simple. No more calorie counting or portion controlling – it’s about returning to natural, nutrient-rich foods. Choosing to simply include more raw foods daily, as part of a permanent lifestyle change, can help you lose weight, detox and enjoy much more energy.
    Stop counting calories – ENJOY your weight loss…
    The effects of going raw are well-documented – we look younger, hair and nails strengthen, skin gets clearer, pores tighten, eyes brighten, depression lifts, diseases heal and we feel energised. People undergo ‘raw-markable’ transformations. In addition to all those benefits, swift, sustainable weight loss is one of the primary effects of beginning a diet rich in raw foods. In my first year raw, for example, I lost around 7.5 stone (105lbs). If this lifestyle’s sustained, the weight loss is also easily maintained. I released around 11.5 stone (160lbs) in total and have kept it off for over three years.
    This is a completely different approach to ‘dieting’. It’s not about how many calories something contains, the fat grams or the endorsements on the packaging. It’s about how it feels in your body - do you enjoy it, are you energised by it, are you feeling better?
    The raw lifestyle is extremely cleansing. The body goes through an incredible transformation: toxins, including fats that have accumulated over years are released through massive detox. The body always works towards health, so when it suddenly receives potent enzyme and nutrient rich food with which to clean and cure itself, it seizes the opportunity to become much healthier, very quickly. In my opinion, eating more raw is easily the most natural, simple and rapid path to sustained weight loss available.
    Most people however seem to look towards those unsustainable ‘quick-fix’ solutions for weight loss like dieting, ‘miracle’ powders/pills or even bariatric surgery. These solutions rarely provide satisfactory results in the long-run.
    Diets Don’t Work…
    The truth is that diets don’t work. Often, people just lose excess water when dieting. They’re thrilled to see a lower number on the scales and soon revert back to previous habits. They then re-gain weight (and often extra), ending up in a ‘yo-yo’ dieting situation. So, how is going raw different? I don’t see this as a temporary patch-up solution, or a diet we go ‘on’, waiting to come ‘off’ again at some point; for me, it’s a genuinely effective and loving lifestyle choice. We adjust to a permanent new abundance of fresh, raw food, which cleanses the body, nourishes and sustains us.
    This path doesn’t chain you to endless diet club sessions and expenditures, nor is it funded by any multi-national pharmaceutical company. There is no big business behind raw fruits and vegetables - it is just simple, natural and effective. The great news too is that you don’t have to eat 100%, completely raw to feel the benefits – just eating more raw than cooked food will begin your healing. If you can simultaneously remove the primary ‘nasties’ in your diet – i.e. processed starches, refined sugars, pasteurised dairy - your cleansing and weight loss will progress dramatically.
    One definition of madness is to keep doing the same thing over and over again, expecting different results. Yet people come ‘off’ a diet, revert back to previous eating habits and are surprised to find they re-gain weight and feel the same as before. A KEY aspect to understand is that making committed changes to your lifestyle will bring about complete changes in your body and well-being.
    You are what you eat. Did you ever wonder what that really means? The foods you eat literally make up your cells. Consider food as messages to your body cells for a moment. The optimal foods for your body are natural things it can easily recognise. Your body can ‘understand the message’ when you eat fresh watermelon for example much more easily than denatured, pre-packaged low-fat ready-meals. The body has to work much harder to ‘unpack’ the information in the ready meal. It likely contains any number of preservatives, stabilisers, processed starches, trans-fats and so on – things that simply don’t occur in nature. There may be all kinds of claims on the box about how it will help you slim down and gain energy, but those aren’t the messages your body receives. With cooked/processed foods, the body isn’t getting the nutrients it needs, so it keeps asking for more, which ironically often leads to eating huge amounts of ‘empty’ foods, like pasta, sweets and snack foods. When we eat mainly raw foods, the body gets what it needs - enzymes, vitamins, minerals and other nutrients - in a form that’s easily understandable and useable.
    The same principle goes for trying to lose weight permanently and successfully using medicines/pills. The body doesn’t recognise such chemicals – they only complicate matters in the long run. In the short term they may raise your metabolism and help you burn some fat, but in the long-term it is hard to even know what damage these chemicals may cause. Making long-term, permanent changes to your FOOD intake is the optimal way to natural weight loss, not ingesting chemical pills alongside a life-less diet. As Hippocrates put it ‘Let food be thy medicine’.
    How do I eat raw for weight loss?
    For most people, ‘going raw’ seems like a huge change. I want to re-emphasise that to see real and effective weight loss, there is no demand that you MUST be 100% raw, now or ever, or indeed do anything that doesn’t feel comfortable to you. Try starting with baby steps. Ultimately, the most important message here is to EAT MORE RAW – it doesn’t matter if you begin at 50, 60 or 70% raw, as long as you’re eating more raw than you used to, and more raw foods than dead, cooked foods (or at least equal amounts of each), you will start to see results.
    In the beginning especially, if you’re coming from a junk food background, like I was, anything is an improvement as you’re moving away from processed foods towards more natural produce. People usually fear that to eat more raw means it’s all carrot sticks and apples from here on. That need not be the case at all. It’s possible to produce incredibly lavish raw meals, as gourmet as you like. The advantage with raw foods is that even if you eat raw cake all day long in the beginning (not recommended), you would still likely lose weight, because you’re NOT eating those other toxic foods anymore and you ARE receiving masses more nutrients. When dieting, people often feel deprived, as they’re calorie counting and weighing foods and these restrictions can feel very un-nurturing. As a result, when the diet ends, they often swing into binge eating. Eating raw can alleviate so much of that pattern.
    Just go for it – try it out for a day, a week or even a month and see the difference in your appearance, energy and health. The more raw foods you ingest compared to cooked, the more opportunity you have to release toxins/excess weight and regain health. The choice is yours, but the minimum level I suggest starting at is 50% raw (by weight, not volume of the food) and work up from there. That might mean eating only fruits before lunch, salads with all cooked meals, choosing all raw snacks and so on.
    Taking it at YOUR pace…
    Remember: this is about long-term, realistic changes, not about ‘magic-bullet’ solutions or being perfect at being raw, so take things at a pace that’s comfortable for you. Be aware that making a huge change from a very unhealthy diet to very high raw can be extremely demanding in terms of detox and you may experience a ‘healing crisis’ if you push too far, too fast. Your body stores many toxins in fatty tissue, so the faster the fat breaks down, the faster the toxins are released and too many toxins released too quickly can cause discomfort. Be sure to incorporate colon cleansing to aid the elimination process. Going 100% raw has many health benefits, including a clearer system, increased assimilation and greater energy and I certainly recommend it in the long-run, but in the beginning, it’s usually beneficial to take your transition gently.
    You might find at first that you feel like eating nuts constantly, along with three avocadoes a day. It’s ok. Avocadoes won’t make you fat. Fats are an area where people tend to feel confusion and fear. Raw fats are completely different to cooked fats. Whereas cooked fats clog up the body with all kinds of toxins, raw fats such as those from avocadoes, olives, coconuts, nuts, seeds and oils nourish the body, soften the skin and actually promote weight loss. This is mainly because raw fats still have enzymes intact, especially lipase, which helps to break fat down, whereas with cooked/processed fats, the enzymes are mostly destroyed.
    It is very likely you will eat more food at the start of going raw than you will further along this path, as your nutrient assimilation slowly improves. As you progress therefore, you will likely want to reduce your fat intake, but in the beginning, nuts and avocadoes are very useful and not to be feared/avoided – you can easily eat plenty of them and still lose weight ;)
    Taking it to the next level – beyond the physical…
    Something that really excites me about people going raw for weight loss is that it tends to foster exploration of many other aspects of themselves – not just the physical. Rather than it all just being a ‘weight issue’, people start to examine the emotional suppression and so on, underlying those excess pounds. They begin to unfold more and connect with hidden parts of themselves, reaching out to others for support. Far from being a ‘shallow’ process of losing some fat/water, then reverting to old habits, this is about positive, real life changes. Working through these shifts may feel tough in the short-term, but overall will leave you clearer and less likely to return to self-destructive patterns.
    I see going raw as an incredible path for natural weight loss and healing on all levels. If you want to experience genuine, lasting shifts in your health and vitality, I say go for it – EAT MORE RAW - there’s nothing to lose but all that weight.
    Top Three Tips for Successful Raw Weight Loss:
    1. GET YOUR GREENS
    Green vegetables alkalise and re-mineralise, which is vital for good health. At least one green drink daily is ideal – try fresh vegetable juice, a green smoothie or simply green powder like spirulina/green superfood mixture with water. Eat greens too, but know that having them as liquids means you can ingest larger quantities, with more assimilable nutrients.
    2. AVOID EATING LATE AT NIGHT
    Key for losing weight and keeping it off. Try not to eat after around 7-8pm, as digestive power is weaker at night. Avoid going to sleep on a full stomach. Foods eaten late at night ‘stick’ to the body much more.
    3. ENJOY YOURSELF
    I believe we’re here to enjoy ourselves. Avoid feelings of restriction and ‘deprivation’ by being creative and playful with foods. This is a big lifestyle change for many and if you’re not having fun, it’s not likely you’ll sustain it, so ENJOY!
