Ramsey County recently demoted a department director who played a key role over the past decade in redeveloping the downtown St. Paul Union Depot and guiding the growth of the St. Paul area’s public transit system. For weeks, Deputy County Manager Heather Worthington has been overseeing the Ramsey County Regional Rail Authority, after longtime director Tim Mayasich was reassigned at the end of March following an internal complaint from an employee.
St. Paul building manager Jaunae Brooks pledged earlier this week to continue closing the skyway connection of the Railroader Printing building off Mears Park at 8 p.m. to keep vagrants away. City ordinances require the skyway to remain open until at least 2 a.m. The decision defies the will of the St. Paul City Council, which voted 4-3 Wednesday against her request for a variance from the city’s skyway regulations.
Ramsey County has hired a new director for its division of policy and planning. Elizabeth Tolzmann will lead goal-setting, visioning, planning and policy analysis across the organization. County manager Julie Kleinschmidt called Tolzmann’s background in public administration and community engagement varied and unique. Tolzmann is the assistant city manager for Bloomington.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
