Fact check: Mark Andrew citing outdated job losses report


At the first mayoral forum on March 27, candidate Mark Andrew criticized current city leadership for not having a “articulated, cogent, rational, comprehensive strategy” to recapture Minneapolis jobs.

To illustrate his point, Andrew threw out a bold statistic.

“In Minneapolis today, we have 28,000 fewer jobs than we had in 2001.”

Andrew’s statement is based on outdated numbers from 2010.
