Up until this year, Andrea Jenkins was best known as a poet, multimedia artist, the University of Minnesota’s Oral Historian for the Transgender Oral History Project and LGBTQ activist. With the election on November 7th, Jenkins can now add another line to her resume: Minneapolis City Council member. Jenkins won her ward with almost 70% of the vote, beating her nearest competitor by a 5 to 1 margin in an instant runoff race. Andrea Jenkins joins us Eight O’Clock Buzz host Brian Standing by phone.
