Council committee approves six appointees to Commission on Civil Rights


A City Council committee approved six appointments to the Minneapolis Commission on Civil Rights today.

A recruiting effort is underway to fill two remaining vacancies with North Minneapolis residents, said Toni Newborn, interim assistant director of the Civil Rights Department's Complaint Investigations Division.

The Civil Rights Department received 18 applications for the open seats on the commission, but no candidates from wards 4, 5 and 6, Newborn said.
