Her platform includes promoting "diverse housing including affordable, senior, and homeowner options to balance the emerging rental development boom" and "funding for critical community services, such as youth services, health and human services, services for the aging, road maintenance while keeping a keen eye on tax increases."

Election day is next Tuesday, November 3, and polls are open from 6am-9pm.

Casita del Polaris is Northstar Public House's event space, at 1201 North Tioga Street, adjacent to the restaurant in the building that used to house Fall Creek Pictures. Anna Kelles's meet-and-greet starts at 6pm, and she encourages supporters to stick around for the Road Man show that starts there at 8pm.
