Once again, perennial candidate Dick Franson was the first person in line at City Hall to file to run for office in the 2013 Minneapolis elections.
Franson was an hour early for the 8 a.m. opening of the city clerk’s window. Second in line was Gregg Iverson, who showed up a half hour later.
“In 2009, I beat (Mark) Stenglein out and he resented it,” Franson said of showing up first. “He’s 6’5” and it was funny as hell, really.”
